Ayyam-i-Ha Song

In just less than a week, Baha’is all around the world celebrate Ayyam-i-Ha which is a time of bringing cheer to others, visiting the poor and needy and giving gifts.  One of the ways I like to celebrate is by giving Ayyam-i-Ha cards to show my love for my friends and family.
Last year, during the festival of Ayyam-i-Ha, I composed a song specially for the occasion. You can watch the video and listen to it here. For those of you in China, you can watch the video on youku.  I have recorded the song in Chinese as well (let me know if you want me to email you a rough copy) and the lyrics are below in both languages and pin yin:

These are the Days Of Ha     这荣耀的日子啊     Zhe Rongyao de Rizi a
Given by Baha’u’llah     它来自巴哈欧拉     Ta Laizi Baha’u’llah
Time for joy and happiness     尘世的欢歌会消逝     Chenshi de Huange hui Xiaoshi
These precious days are blessed     这福佑永不绝     Zhe Fuyou yong bu jue
Chorus: Happy Ayyam-i-Ha x4    开心阿亚密哈     Kaixin Ayyam-i-Ha
Acts of charity, hospitality     慷慨地给予,并不会失去     Kangkai de Geiyu, Bing Buhui Shiqu
Giving each other gifts     分享即富有     Fenxiang ji Fuyou
Visiting the poor and needy     你要善待陌生的人     Ni Yao Shandai Mosheng de ren
Friends and family     唤醒他的心     Huanxing Ta de Xin
Chorus:  Happy Ayyam-i-Ha  x4   开心阿亚密哈     Kaixin Ayyam-i-Ha
A time of cheer, a time of joy     云上的欢歌,地上的花朵     Yunshang de Huange, Dishang de Huaduo,
A spiritual preparation     啊灵魂  在生长     A Linghun, zai Shengzhang
Time for celebration     我们在感恩     Wo’men zai Gan’en
Chorus:   Happy Ayyam-i-Ha x4     开心阿亚密哈     Kaixin Ayyam-i-Ha
Time of joy and happiness     今日的欢歌永难忘     Jinri de Huange Yong Nan Wang
Happy Ayyam-i-Ha     开心阿亚密哈     Kaixin Ayyam-i-Ha

Since posting this blog, I have re-recorded the Ayyam-i-Ha song with Larry Magee playing the guitars.  Here is the link to download the song.
