Provisional Translation

  • He is the Most Glorious
  • O thou who hast been set ablaze
  • by the fire of the love of God!
  • Perfume thy nostrils
  • with the holy fragrance of the Divine Beauty,
  • and illumine thy heart with the holy ornaments
  • of the Most Glorious Beloved.
  • Enchant thy ears
  • by listening to the melodies
  • of the birds of the divine gardens,
  • and rise with full strength
  • to promote the sweet-smelling fragrance
  • of the gardens of divine realms
  • so that thou may receive
  • the confirmations of the army of the Abha Kingdom and witness the victory
  • of the hosts of the Concourse on High,
  • and perceive the power
  • and the might of the Ancient Beauty.
  • Glory be upon thee
  • and upon all who are firm and steadfast.
  • 'Abdu’l-Bahá
