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 San Francisco, USA with Mona Nejad, Sasha Bayan and Sam Suggs, who sing “Swiftness of Lightning” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.
You can also listen to and download the audio version of this song from Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page here:
This song was filmed and recorded in San Francisco, USA, February 2017.
Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below, followed by a link to the chords.
“Even as the swiftness of lightning your days shall pass, and your bodies shall be laid to rest beneath a canopy of dust. What can ye then achieve? How can ye atone for your past failure?” -Baha’u’llah
