Tonight is the Ascension of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá which is commemorated by Bahá’ís all around the world. For this occasion, I wanted to share this video I recently created titled, ‘Hold Thou My Hand’.
Creating a video for ‘Hold Thou My Hand’ has been a truly heavenly experience. I was surprised to find so many beautiful photographs of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá that I could include.
As I placed the photographs in the slideshow I was moved by how several of them fit perfectly with the lyrics of the poem. In one part, as ‘Abdu’l-Bahá raises His hand, the poem reads ‘Hold Thou My Hand’.
I felt inspired to end the slideshow with the staircase in Abdullah Pasha where one feels as though one is walking up the stairs to approach Him.
I hope you were as uplifted by the slideshow as I was creating it.
Below is the video. Please feel free to share it. Here is a link to download the song, ‘Hold Thou My Hand’.
