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 Bristol, in the United Kingdom with Poppy Villierezz who sings “Waters” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
You can also watch the recording of this song on Baha’i Blog’s YouTube channel here:
This song was filmed and recorded in Bristol, in the United Kingdom, May 2018.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:
“Cleanse me with the waters of Thy mercy, O my Lord, and make me wholly Thine, and cause me to approach the Tabernacle of Thy Cause and the adored Sanctuary of Thy Presence. Ordain, then, for me all the things Thou didst ordain for the chosen ones among Thy handmaidens, and rain down upon me that which will illuminate my face and enlighten my heart.”
Repeat: FMaj7 C Am Em
Cleanse me, Cleanse me, With the waters of Thy Mercy (X2) Oh my Lord (x 8)
Make me wholly, Make me wholly Thine (X2) O my Lord (x 8)
Rain down rain down rain down, Upon me, That which will illuminate My face And enlighten my heart
O my Lord (x6)
