Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.
In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Manzini, Eswatini with the Eswatini Baha’i Choir who sing “Wasiyala” in siSwati from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
This song was filmed and recorded in Manzini, Eswatini, December 2018.
Lyrics & Quote
Wasiyala Baha’u’llah watsi lulwini silucaphele. Nconota kubinza futsi ukhweshe, enkhulumeni lengelutfo. Wasiyala Baha’u’llah watsi lulwini silucaphele. Mawukhuluma kwece kungushevu, lobulalako lobhubhisako. Wasiyala Baha’u’llah watsi lulwini silucaphele. Emandla emlilo asheshe aphele, keph’elulwimi alikhulu lemnyaka. Wasiyala Baha’u’llah watsi lulwini silucaphele. Ngoba lulwimi lungumlilo, lobobotsako locotfulako.Baha’u’llah
[Baha’u’llah admonished us to be cautious of the tongue.]
…observe silence and refrain from idle talk. For the tongue is a smoldering fire, and excess of speech a deadly poison.
The force of the former lasteth but for a time, whilst the effects of the latter endureth a century.
Material fire consumeth the body, whereas the fire of the tongue devoureth both heart and soul.Baha’u’llah
