In this day and age it’s become much easier to get a hold of new information and materials. Years ago, if you wanted to play an instrument like your guitar or keyboard at a gathering or camp, you’d have to get things like sheet music off other people and from books at Baha’i stores. Now, all you have to do is get online, grab the music yourself from the comfort of your own home and print it off!
Music is a important ingredient at feasts, firesides, devotionals, childrens classes, and many other Baha’i meetings, as it is a ladder to the soul. So getting those upbeat tunes to sing along with and liven up your events is a must!
As Baha’u’llah says,
We, verily, have made music as a ladder for your souls, a means whereby they may be lifted up unto the realm on high.
Baha’i sheet music can be found on these handy dandy websites:
1. Baha’i Songs, which has chords and lyrics for 100 songs. Songs are organised in alphabetical order and are super easy to find.
2. Baha’i Songs with Guitar Chords has a nifty file with a large number of songs and guitar chords. The songs here are very popular at Baha’i camps and childrens classes! Scribd is a paid service however, so if you want to fully access the songs they host on their website, you’ll have to subscribe.
3. Manifold Melodies has sheet music for piano on a small selection of songs such as ‘God is sufficient unto me’ and ‘Dastam Begir’.
I thoroughly recommend checking out these sites because they host a great selection of songs; the very same songs you’d sing along to at friendly gatherings!
I hope you find them useful!
