“إِلهِي إِلهِي أَسْألُكَ بِبَحْرِ شِفائِكَ وَإِشْراقاتِ أَنْوارِ نَيِّرِ فَضْلِكَ وَبِالاسْمِ الَّذِيْ سَخَّرْتَ بِهِ عِبادَكَ وَبِنُفُوذِ كَلِمَتِكَ العُلْيا وَإقْتِدارِ قَلَمِكَ الأَعْلى وَبِرَحْمَتِكَ الَّتِيْ سَبَقَتْ مَنْ فِي الأَرْضِ وَالسَّمآءِ، أَنْ تُطَهِّرَنِي بِماءِ العَطآءِ مِنْ كُلِّ بَلآءٍ وَسَقَمٍ وَضَعْفٍ وَعَجْزٍ، أَيْ رَبِّ تَرَى السَّائِلَ قائِمًاً لَدى بابِ جُودِكَ وَالآمِلَ مُتَمَسِّكًاً بِحَبْلِ كَرَمِكَ، أَسْألُكَ أَنْ لا تُخَيِّبَهُ عَمَّا أَرادَ مِنْ بَحْرِ فَضْلِكَ وَشَمْسِ عِنايَتِك. إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ المُقْتَدِرُ عَلَى ما تَشآءُ لا إِلهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ الغَفُورُ الْكَرِيمُ.” حضرة بهاءالله

“O God, my God! I beg of Thee by the ocean of Thy healing, and by the splendors of the Daystar of Thy grace, and by Thy Name through which Thou didst subdue Thy servants, and by the pervasive power of Thy most exalted Word and the potency of Thy most august Pen, and by Thy mercy that hath preceded the creation of all who are in heaven and on earth, to purge me with the waters of Thy bounty from every affliction and disorder, and from all weakness and feebleness. Thou seest, O my Lord, Thy suppliant waiting at the door of Thy bounty, and him who hath set his hopes on Thee clinging to the cord of Thy generosity. Deny him not, I beseech Thee, the things he seeketh from the ocean of Thy grace and the Daystar of Thy loving-kindness.
Powerful art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee. There is none other God save Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.” Baha’u’llah

LYRICS
Wherefore, wed thou, in the heaven of Thy mercy these two birds of the nest of Thy love and make them the means of attracting perpetual grace, that from the union of these two seas of love, a wave of tenderness may surge and cast the pearls of pure and goodly issue on the shore of life.
-‘Abdu’l-Bahá

The Báb – Herald of the Bahá’í Faith
In the middle of the 19th century—one of the most turbulent periods in the world’s history—a young merchant announced that He was the bearer of a message destined to transform the life of humanity. At a time when His country, Iran, was undergoing widespread moral breakdown, His message aroused excitement and hope among all classes, rapidly attracting thousands of followers. He took the name “The Báb”, meaning “the Gate” in Arabic.

With His call for spiritual and moral reformation, and His attention to improving the position of women and the lot of the poor, the Báb’s prescription for spiritual renewal was revolutionary. At the same time, He founded a distinct, independent religion of His own, inspiring His followers to transform their lives and carry out great acts of heroism.

The Báb announced that humanity stood at the threshold of a new era. His mission, which was to last only six years, was to prepare the way for the coming of a Manifestation of God Who would usher in the age of peace and justice promised in all the world’s religions: Bahá’u’lláh.

“His life is one of the most magnificent examples of courage which it has been the privilege of mankind to behold…”

— Tribute to the Báb by the 19th century French writer A.L.M. Nicolas

Nava Revalk – O Thou kind Lord!

Video Recorded in Baha’i Public Information Office – Adelaide, Australia

Prayer:

O Thou kind Lord!

Thou hast created all humanity from the same stock. Thou hast decreed that all shall belong to the same household. In Thy Holy Presence they are all Thy servants, and all mankind are sheltered beneath Thy Tabernacle; all have gathered together at Thy Table of Bounty; all are illumined through the light of Thy Providence.

O God! Thou art kind to all, Thou hast provided for all, dost shelter all, conferrest life upon all. Thou hast endowed each and all with talents and faculties, and all are submerged in the Ocean of Thy Mercy.

O Thou kind Lord! Unite all. Let the religions agree and make the nations one, so that they may see each other as one family and the whole earth as one home. May they all live together in perfect harmony.

O God! Raise aloft the banner of the oneness of mankind.

O God! Establish the Most Great Peace.

Cement Thou, O God, the hearts together.

O Thou kind Father, God! Gladden our hearts through the fragrance of Thy love. Brighten our eyes through the Light of Thy Guidance. Delight our ears with the melody of Thy Word, and shelter us all in the Stronghold of Thy Providence.

Thou art the Mighty and Powerful, Thou art the Forgiving and Thou art the One Who overlooketh the shortcomings of all mankind.

‘Abdu’l-Bahá

The Bahá’i Trio – “My Providence”

O SON OF MAN! My calamity is My providence, outwardly it is fire and vengeance, but inwardly it is light and mercy. Hasten thereunto that thou mayest become an eternal light and an immortal spirit. This is My command unto thee, do thou observe it.

O SOHN DES MENSCHEN! Mein Trübsal ist meine Vorsehung. Äußerlich ist sie Feuer und Züchtigung, zuinnerst aber Licht und Gnade. Eile ihr entgegen, auf daß du ein ewiges Licht und ein unsterblicher Geist werdest. Dies ist mein Gebot an dich, beachte es!

– Bahá’u’lláh

– Put to music by Mica Smith & Nadine Reyhani

The Bahá’i Trio – “Love Is The Light”

Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul, every illumined soul. Liebe ist das Licht der Führung im nächtlichen Dunkel.

Liebe ist das Band zwischen dem Schöpfer und dem Geschöpf in der Welt des Inneren. Liebe ist die Ursache der Entwicklung für jeden erleuchteten Menschen.

– ‘Abdu’l-Bahá –

Put to music by Bonnie Lisbeth, Sara Agahi & Cranmore Youth
