A few years ago I released a song in honor of the Festival of Ridvan titled ‘‘Rejoice with Exceeding Gladness’. The song was originally composed in 6 languages! Since then we have recorded the piece in 16 language versions with talented musicians around the world!

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, to Naseem Majzoub for the beautiful photo of the blue bench that Bahá’u’lláh used to sit on and also Shira Trick for her lovely video of 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.
Thanks to my Patrons, I’m able to make these songs available as gift downloads in 16 languages for friends to enjoy for Ridvan!
