  • ‘The Divine Mystery’ is a booklet-album that includes thirteensongs in honor of the centenary of the Ascension of 'Abdu'l-Bahá. The lyrics to ten of the songs are from the Writings of 'Abdu'l-Bahá, and the eleventh is an arrangement of the well-known poem "Hold Thou my Hand" written in His honor. The last song of the album comprises of some of the tiles of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá bestowed upon him. Two of the pieces on the album set to music are recently translated prayers of ‘Abdu’l-Baha. The album includes a bonus track of 'Heavenly Grace' alternate version without drums for a more meditational listening experience.

    Immediate download of all the songs is available upon purchase.

    All the lyrics are printed in the booklet, which features a beautiful photograph of the Master and includes a brief introduction to His life. Professional photographs of Holy Places in Haifa and Akka associated with the life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá are elegantly placed throughout the booklet.

    The product comes packaged in a gold chiffon bag so that it can be given as a special gift, and each booklet includes a unique download code to be used to download the music. I hope that this album and booklet will be given as gifts to friends, family, colleagues and neighbors to celebrate the life of 'Abdu'l-Baha.

about

An inspiring poem and song about 'Abdu'l-Bahá titled, 'Hold Thou My Hand'. I have loved this song for many years and wanted to arrange my own rendition of it on the piano. The poem was written by Dr. Habíb Mu’ayyad and the melody was composed by Gloria Faizi.

lyrics

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, I’m far from home
The road is dark, I’m alone
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, be Thou my guide
When I am weak stay by my side
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

Chorus
‘Abdu’l-Bahá, O dearest Friend
Help me to reach my journey’s end
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, hear me I pray
O help me lest I go astray
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, I shall not fear
When I am sure that Thou art near
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, O dearest Friend
Help me to reach my journey’s end
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, I’m far from home
The road is dark, I’m alone
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand

‘Abdu’l-Bahá, O dearest Friend
Help me to reach my journey’s end
Hold Thou my hand, Hold Thou my hand
