Here is the quotation used for the lyrics, followed by the English translation and the lyrics and chords:

FRENCH:

« Ah ! Confiez-vous à Dieu car Sa bonté est inépuisable et Ses bénédictions sont
merveilleuses. Placez votre foi dans le Tout-Puissant car Il est infaillible. Sa générosité dure à jamais. Car Son Soleil donne toujours la lumière, Sa compassion inonde ceux qui croient en Lui. »

-Abdu’l-Baha

ENGLISH:

“Oh, trust in God! for His Bounty is everlasting, and in His Blessings, for they are superb. Oh! put your faith in the Almighty, for He faileth not and His goodness endureth forever! His Sun giveth Light continually, and the Clouds of His Mercy are full of the Waters of Compassion with which He waters the hearts of all who trust in Him.”
-Abdu’l-Baha
