Here is the quotation used for the lyrics in English and in Spanish, followed by the chords below:

ENGLISH:

“O MY FRIENDS! Have ye forgotten that true and radiant morn, when in those hallowed and blessed surroundings ye were all gathered in My presence beneath the shade of the tree of life, which is planted in the all-glorious paradise? Awe-struck ye listened as I gave utterance to these three most holy words: O friends! Prefer not your will to Mine, never desire that which I have not desired for you, and approach Me not with lifeless hearts, defiled with worldly desires and cravings. Would ye but sanctify your souls, ye would at this present hour recall that place and those surroundings, and the truth of My utterance should be made evident unto all of you.” -Baha’u’llah

CHORUS IN SPANISH:

“¡Oh amigos! No prefieras vuestra voluntad a la mía, nunca desees lo que no he deseado para vosotros” -Baha’u’llah
