Man IRANam من ایرانم The Video

Lyrics from a poem written by Houshang Mahmoudi, music composed by Sonbol. In this poem Houshang Mahmoudi paints a beautiful picture of his homeland Iran, a  tribute to Iran as the birthplace of Baha'u'llah; the founder of the Baha'i Faith.

Mr Mahmoudi was arrested by the revolutionary Islamic government of Iran in july 1980, together with other members of the Baha'i institutions;  soon after he was executed for his belief in the Baha'i Faith. 

Translation of the lyrics:

The land of musk and perfume, I am delightful 
Home to the strong and courageous
The land of Zorhaster, fireplace of love
I am Iran, delightful, heartwarming, enchanting

From my east, the sun pours it's rays of love to all
It's light is life giver of the world
It's love gives warmth to all hearts

My red tulip covered meadows, paint the face of the whole world in rose
and my musk scented breezes renew mankind

The light of my beloved Baha illumines the whole earth
For the sun of truth was shone from my land
my earth is scented with musk and my water gives life

With just one ray from my glorious sun 
I can elevates a mere atom to highest heights. 
I am Iran, delightful, heartwarming, enchanting
I am Iran
