  • ‘The Divine Mystery’ is a booklet-album that includes eleven songs 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. 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

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.

lyrics

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
