    ‘Fire and Gold’ blends eastern and western musical styles and features a number of languages including English, Spanish, Arabic and Chinese. The theme is the tests and difficulties of life, and the title comes from the Hidden Words of Baha’u'llah: “Busy not thyself with this world, for with fire we test the gold and with gold we test our servants”. The music is diverse and reflects influences from around the world.

    In addition to Elika’s piano performances, the songs also include a number of outstanding musicians on Celtic harp, Persian nay flute and santour, Spanish guitar,Chinese erhu, flute and cello.The result is a sophisticated, yet catchy fusion of progressive ideas with ancient, classic overtones layered with gorgeous melodies that has literally brought tears to many listeners. It truly eases the soul from the burdens of this earthly life and uplifts it with divine illuminations.

about

This poem was written by Amatu’l-Bahá Rúhíyyih Khánum, a true heroine of the spiritual path. She describes how faith calls us to do the seemingly impossible, yet when there is love we are able to see the end in the beginning and to dare to work for visions yet unseen. This composition is in honor of her life of faith.

lyrics

To walk where there is no path
To breathe where there is no air
To see where there is no light
This is Faith

To cry out in the silence
The silence of the night
And hearing no echo, believe
And believe again and again
This is Faith

To hold pebbles and see jewels
To raise sticks and see forests
To smile with weeping eyes
This is Faith

To say God I believe when others deny
I hear when there is no answer
I see though naught is seen
This is Faith

And the fierce love in the heart
The savage love that cries
Hidden Thou art yet there!
Veil Thy face and mute Thy tongue

Yet I see and hear Thee love
Beat me down to the bare earth
Yet I rise and love Thee, love
This is Faith
