The Power Of Thy Name

I’ve been meaning for some time now to share my joy and admiration at the creative endeavors that the beloved writings of Baha’u’llah have inspired not only in myself but in other artists and filmmakers.

The lyrics for The Power Of Thy Name is such a powerful quote that it is no wonder it has inspired such moving works as the song by Devon Gundry and popular video by Justin Baldoni that has made its rounds on the Internet and has been used in various devotional gatherings, deeply touching everyone with emotion, including myself.

This kind of creative expression of the word is exactly what we need to reach a new generation!
This quote must have equally inspired my producer Jarome and score arranger Farshid Samandari to have come up with such beautiful cello parts for the song that so many have enjoyed and commented on.

I am sharing our recording of the piece ‘The Power of Thy Name’ below. I hope you enjoy!

Armed with the power of Thy name nothing can ever hurt me, and with Thy love in my heart all the world's afflictions can in no wise alarm me. -Bahá’u’lláh
