You are invited to watch and share ‘Arise’, a short choral piece composed specially for the Festival of the Twin Holy Days that commemorates the anniversaries of the Birth of Baha’u’llah and of The Bab. The words to ‘Arise’ are taken from a newly-translated Tablet of Baha’u’llah concerning the Birth of Baha’u’llah to be published in the forthcoming volume “Days of Remembrance.”
“O people of Bahá! Soar upon the wings of detachment into the atmosphere of the love of your Lord, the All-Merciful. Arise then to render Him victorious…” -Baha’u’llah
The video features the Shrine of Baha’u’llah near Akka in Israel, the holiest spot on earth for Baha’is.
Vocals and composition: Elika Mahony
