Recently I had the blessing of spending some quality time with my daughter. We had been apart for 2 years as a result of the pandemic so it has been such a joy to be with her and to sing together once again.
Last week we recorded a few pieces and I wanted to share one of them with you today. It is a live video of us singing Armed with the Power of Thy Name. The words are from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh and the melody is composed by Devon Gundry.
One of my highlights parenting Amelia has been harmonizing with her, something that we have done from her childhood. We both love singing this piece, especially the phrase ‘Yá Bahá’u’l-Abhá’ (an invocation meaning ‘O Glory of the All-Glorious’). The way our voices blend together on the same note and then harmonize in that part is such a glorious feeling. You’ll see at the end of the video I can hardly contain myself as I reach out and hug her!
