“Morning Prayer” performed by Saphira Rameshfar

May 21, 2016

The music clips heard in our May podcast interview with Al Cadena of the Bahá'í Center of NYC are taken from the song “Morning Prayer.”  The words are those of Baha'u'llah, the founder of the Bahá'í faith.  The music was written, and the song is performed by, Saphira Rameshfar.


 “Morning Prayer”

I have risen this morning by Thy grace, O my God, and left my home trusting wholly in Thee, and committing myself to Thy care.  Send down, then, upon me, out of the heaven of Thy mercy, a blessing from Thy side, and enable me to return home in safety even as Thou didst enable me to set out under Thy protection with my thoughts fixed steadfastly upon Thee.

 There is none other God but Thee, the One, the Incomparable, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
