Here is the quotation used for the lyrics, followed by the translation:
“He despertado bajo tu amparo, oh mi Dios, y corresponde a quien busca tal amparo permanecer dentro del santuario de tu proteccion y la fortaleza de tu defensa. Ilumina mi ser interior, oh mi Señor, con los resplandores de la aurora de tu Revelacion, asi como iluminaste mi ser exterior con la luz matinal de tu favor.” – Bahá’u’lláh
“I have wakened in Thy shelter, O my God, and it becometh him that seeketh that shelter to abide within the Sanctuary of Thy protection and the Stronghold of Thy defense. Illumine my inner being, O my Lord, with the splendors of the Dayspring of Thy Revelation, even as thou didst illumine my outer being with the morning light of Thy favor.” – Baha’u’llah
