about

This prayer found song during a period of time where I was living with my new hubby in Tahiti, a French territory, so we were speaking (and praying) in French all the time. Various prayers found melody during those years, often in collaboration with local friends. This is one that found me on a dreamy, humid afternoon... It is the French of a Baha'i mystic Writing, that begins "O Friend! In the garden of thy heart plant naught but the rose of love..."

lyrics

O Ami
Dans le jardin de ton coeur
ne plante que la rose d'amour
et du rossignole de l'affection
et du desir ne relache pas ton etrainte
attache toi soigneusement
a la compagnie des justes
et abstiens toi de toute relation
avec les impies
