about

Hey! We are TaliaSafa, A.K.A. Talia Johnson and Safa Paulson. We've whipped out an album at lightning speed. It only took us 9 years!

I hope you enjoy all the work that our Engineer/Producer and collaborating Songwriter/Musician Jon Rezin put into this project. Attract the Hearts is an album with an eclectic mix of song styles and features many talented musicians. The songs all come from the sacred texts of the Bahá'í Faith.

We have the privilege of including New Creation's song “Let All Associate” on our album (for which Talia and Safa contribute lead and backing vocals). Brenda Cooper Derry was the major driving force behind the song. Michael Derry and Talia contributed to the creation of the song as well.

Track Name: O Son of Earth
O SON OF EARTH! Wouldst thou have Me, seek none other than Me; and wouldst thou gaze upon My beauty, close thine eyes to the world and all that is therein; for My will and the will of another than Me, even as fire and water, cannot dwell together in one heart.
Track Name: Prayer for Assistance
O Thou Whose face is the object of my adoration, Whose beauty is my sanctuary, Whose habitation is my goal, Whose praise is my hope, Whose providence is my companion, Whose love is the cause of my being, Whose mention is my solace, Whose nearness is my desire, Whose presence is my dearest wish and highest aspiration, I entreat Thee not to withhold from me the things Thou didst ordain for the chosen ones among Thy servants. Supply me, then, with the good of this world and of the next.

Thou, truly, art the King of all men. There is no God but Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.
Track Name: O Befriended Stranger
O BEFRIENDED STRANGER! The candle of thine heart is lighted by the hand of My power, quench it not with the contrary winds of self and passion. The healer of all thine ills is remembrance of Me, forget it not. Make My love thy treasure and cherish it even as thy very sight and life.
Track Name: Blessed is the Spot
Blessed is the spot,
and the house,
and the place,
and the city,
and the heart,
and the mountain,
and the refuge, and the cave,
and the valley, and the land,
and the sea, and the island,
and the meadow where mention
of God hath been made,
and His praise glorified.
Track Name: O God Guide Me
O God, guide me, protect me, illumine the lamp of my heart and make me a brilliant star. Thou art the Mighty and Powerful.
Track Name: God is Sufficient Unto Me
‘God is sufficient unto me; He verily is the All-sufficing!’ one row would intone, while the other would reply: ‘In Him let the trusting trust.’
Track Name: Attract the Hearts
Attract the hearts of men, through the call of Him, the one alone Beloved. Say: This is the Voice of God, if ye do but hearken. This is the Day Spring of the Revelation of God, did ye but know it. This is the Dawning-Place of the Cause of God, were ye to recognize it.
Track Name: Release Yourselves
Release yourselves,
O nightingales of God,
from the thorns and brambles of wretchedness and misery,...
Track Name: I Adjure Thee
I adjure Thee by Thy might, O my God! Let no harm beset me in times of tests, and in moments of heedlessness guide my steps aright through Thine inspiration. Thou art God, potent art Thou to do what Thou desirest. No one can withstand Thy Will or thwart Thy Purpose.
Track Name: God is Our Witness
God is Our witness. Were We to reveal the hidden secrets of that Day, all they that dwell on earth and in the heavens would swoon away and die, except such as will be preserved by God, the Almighty, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
Track Name: This is a Lamp Lighted
O my Lord! O my Lord! This is a lamp lighted by the fire of Thy love and ablaze with the flame which is ignited in the tree of Thy mercy. O my Lord! Increase his enkindlement, heat and flame, with the fire which is kindled in the Sinai of Thy Manifestation. Verily, Thou art the Confirmer, the Assister, the Powerful, the Generous, the Loving.
Track Name: O Son of Earth - Caeli Lohr Remix
O SON OF EARTH! Wouldst thou have Me, seek none other than Me; and wouldst thou gaze upon My beauty, close thine eyes to the world and all that is therein; for My will and the will of another than Me, even as fire and water, cannot dwell together in one heart.
Track Name: Educate These Children
O God! Educate these children. These children are the plants of Thine orchard, the flowers of Thy meadow, the roses of Thy garden. Let Thy rain fall upon them; let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with Thy love. Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained,
grow and develop, and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver. Thou art the Compassionate.
