I’m thrilled to share with you the release of a song and video about ‘Abdu’l-Bahá titled, ‘Hold Thou My Hand.’ This song has long been a favorite of mine, and I have yearned for many years to record my own arrangement. Download the song together with a lovely pdf of the lyrics.
Here’s the link to view the video on youtube. My friends in China can view it on youku.
After finishing the recording and mastering of the song, I thought the best way to share it would be to accompany the music with images of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. As His Ascension will be upon us in a few days, it seems most fitting that the video is ready now.
Finding the images of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá and creating the slideshow was such a heavenly and moving process. I hope the song and the video inspire you as much as I was inspired creating them.
Feel free to share with any friends you think would want to use them for the commemoration.
