We Must Look Higher

This is the third song on my new album, “The Divine Mystery”, in honor of the centenary of the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Baha.

Originally recorded in 2014 as a duet in English and Chinese on my album ‘Infinite Bounty’, 'We Must Look Higher' has now been remastered and is being released solely in English.


We must look higher than all earthly thoughts; detach ourselves from every material idea, crave for the things of the spirit.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Paris Talks, p. 39

Let nothing grieve thee, and be thou angered at none.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 25

When calamity striketh, be ye patient and composed.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 73

Be thou not unhappy; the tempest of sorrow shall pass; regret will not last; disappointment will vanish.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá Abbas vol. 3, p. 557
