A few years ago I released ‘Rejoice with Exceeding Gladness’ – a song in honor of the Festival of Ridvan. The song is in 6 languages and everyone can join in singing the chorus! The languages included are below. Click on the languages to download the songs as gifts!:
Below are the chords for the song ‘Rejoice with exceeding gladness’. Enjoy!
Videos of the Ridvan Song
Below is a video for the Ridvan song that my talented friend Glenn Franco Simmons created of communities from around the world engaged in service. I hope you enjoy it! Click here to watch it or watch below.
Most of the languages are also available as separate videos. Please see below an example of one in English.
A special thanks Larry Magee who played the guitars and to Jarome Matthew for editing all the languages and making sure they were mixed and mastered to sound alike. I’m also extremely grateful to Adeeb Afshar for sharing several of his beautiful photos from the Ridvan garden and also Shira Trick for her lovely video of the fountain. If you listen closely at the end of the video, you can hear a slight trickle of the water flowing from the fountain.
The songs are a gift to you. Even though the link says ‘Buy Now’ on the website you can download it as a gift (just enter 0 in the amount). As there were production costs, there is an option for donation. Just enter whatever amount you wish. Download the songs here. I would like to thank all the friends who were a part of this project and who graciously recorded their voices so that these songs could be shared and downloaded as gifts for you!
