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 Paris, France with Louis Belmont and Nicolas who sing “O fils de l’esprit” from the Writings of Baha’u’llah in French.

This song was filmed and recorded in Paris, France, December 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the English translation and chords:

“O fils de l’esprit ! A mes yeux, la chose preferee est la justice. Ne t’en ecarte pas si tu me desires, ne la neglige pas si tu veux garder ma confiance. Grace a elle, tu verras par tes propres yeux et non par ceux d’autrui, tu comprendras par ta propre connaissance et non par celle de ton voisin. Pese bien ceci : Comment dois-tu etre ? En verite, la justice est un don que je te fais, le signe de ma tendre bonte. Ne la perds donc pas de vue.”

“O Son of Spirit! The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee. By its aid thou shalt see with thine own eyes and not through the eyes of others, and shalt know of thine own knowledge and not through the knowledge of thy neighbor. Ponder this in thy heart; how it behooveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes.”
– Baha’u’llah

O fils de l’esprit ! A mes yeux, ce que j’aime par-dessus tout est la justice;
ne t’en ecarte pas si c’est moi que tu desires,
et ne la neglige pas afin que je puisse me fier a toi.
Par elle, tu pourras voir par tes propres yeux et non par ceux des autres,
et tu pourras comprendre par ton propre savoir et non par celui du prochain.
Pese bien ceci :
comment dois-tu etre?

Randomly bursting into song is a daily occurrence for Jordan, something which his friends find both hilarious and terrifying, however, for their own survival, they have grown accustomed to acts of randomness. Growing up in both the Czech Republic and Australia, and looking like he’s from neither, Jordan took to creating Youtube videos from a young age, the intention of his content is to make people happy and hopefully spread some positivity juice. He is now studying Media in Melbourne Australia, and singing for his classmates. (he really does not sing that much)
