A Prayer for Protection
Updated: Mar 25
A prayer for protection written by The Báb composed in honor of the Bicentenary of the Birth of The Báb.
This piece is included on Elika Mahony's album 'The Exalted One'. To download the song:
Immeasurably exalted art Thou, O Lord! Protect us from what lieth in front of us and behind us, above our heads, on our right, on our left, below our feet and every other side to which we are exposed. Verily Thy protection over all things is unfailing.
‘The Exalted One’ was created in honor of the Bicentenary of the Birth of the Báb. The 11 songs on the album set the prayers and writings of the Báb to music with piano, cello, guitar, tiple, cuatro (South American instruments) and voice. The cover has a beautiful gold laser cut rendering inspired by the gate leading to the Shrine of the Báb. The album includes a short written introduction to the Life and Mission of the Báb.
