“Wert Thou to Consider” by Alexander & Nickole

May 27, 2021, in Music > Studio Session, by

Baha’i Blog 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 Washington DC, USA, with Nickole Best and Alexander Kruszewski singing “Wert Thou to Consider” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Washington DC, USA, October 2018.

Lyrics & Quote

Wert thou to consider this world, and realize how fleeting are the things that pertain unto it, thou wouldst choose to tread no path except the path of service to the Cause of thy Lord. None would have the power to deter thee from celebrating His praise, though all men should arise to oppose thee.
Go thou straight on and persevere in His service. Say: O people! The Day, promised unto you in all the Scriptures, is now come. Fear ye God, and withhold not yourselves from recognizing the One Who is the Object of your creation. Hasten ye unto Him.
