“Ye Are the Stars” by Ashkan & Siria

February 20, 2024, 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 Edinburgh, in the United Kingdom with Ashkan Ziaie and Siria who sing “Ye Are the Stars” based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah. 

This song was filmed and recorded in Edinburgh, in the United Kingdom in April 2023.

LYRICS/QUOTE: 

Ye are the stars of the heaven of understanding, the breeze that stirreth at the break of day, the soft-flowing waters upon which must depend the very life of all men, the letters inscribed upon His sacred scroll.

And:

…for ye are the first among men to be re-created by His Spirit, the first to adore and bow the knee before Him, the first to circle round His throne of glory. 

CHORDS:

Capo 4:

D, D, Cadd9, Em7, D

G, Dadd9, Asus4, D
