Soundtrak of Your Life Challenge: Day 14 - Prince of Peace
Istiqlál (Independence), 8 Mulk (Dominion) 176 B.E. - Friday, February 14, 2020

Artist: Baha'i Children's Choir
Title: Prince of Peace


Lyrics1

They called Him the Prince of Peace,
They called Him the Prince of Peace,
From Constantinople to Adrianople,
To Akka the prison by the sea.

There lived a man across the ocean,
There lived a man across the sea,
He spoke of love, He spoke of justice,
He spoke to man of unity.

His light is shining forth in all His Glory,
His light is shining for all to see.
It's covered the earth,
Given it new birth,
His light is shining forth for you and me.

His teachings spread from kings to laymen,
His teachings spread to all mankind.
His teachings took on all religions,
And left no helpless soul behind.

This is one of the first songs I learned after declaring my faith in Baha'u'llah. It is still one of my favorites. Some of the lines have been running through my mind for the last few days, so I decided to search for it on YouTube. I found this version, which was recorded during Ridvan 2012 in Seremban, Malaysia.

The first verse gives the cities Baha'u'llah was banished to. In the last verse, where it says "His teachings spread from kings to laymen," it refers to Baha'u'llah's letters to the kings and political leaders of the world. Baha'u'llah proclaimed the three onenesses: (1) the Oneness of God, (2) the Oneness of the foundation of all religions, and (3) the Oneness of the human race.
