Bear and Endure

 

Based on a prayer by Bahá’u’lláh (Fire Tablet)

Capo I

Am | C | F | C

||: Were it not for the cold, how would the heat of Thy words prevail?

Were it not for calamity, how would the sun of Thy patience shine?

Am | C | F | G

Lament not because of the wicked. Thou wert created

Am | C | G F

to bear and endure, o-o-oh, to bear and endure, o-o-o-oh

to bear and endure, o-o-oh, to bear and endure, o-o-o-oh :||

Am | C | F | G

By Thine aloneness the Sun of Oneness shone,

and by Thy banishment the land of Unity was adorned.

||: Be patient, be patient, be patient, O Thou Exile of the worlds. :||

Were it not for the cold, how would the heat of Thy words prevail?

Am | C | F | C

Were it not for calamity, how would the sun of Thy patience shine?

Am | C | F | G

Lament not because of the wicked. Thou wert created

Am | C | G F

||: to bear and endure, o-o-oh, to bear and endure, o-o-o-oh

to bear and endure, o-o-oh, to bear and endure, o-o-o-oh :||

(Bahá is drowning in a sea of tribulation:

Where is the Ark of Thy salvation,

O Savior of the worlds, O Savior of the worlds?)
