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

QUOTATION IN SPANISH

“¡OH HIJO DE LA JUSTICIA!
¿Dónde puede ir un amante si no es a la tierra de su amada? ¿Y qué buscador encuentra descanso lejos del deseo de su corazón? Para el verdadero amante la reunión es vida y la separación es muerte. Su pecho está desprovisto de paciencia y su corazón no está en paz. Renunciaría a una miríada de vidas por apresurarse a la morada de su amada.”

-Baha’u’llah

QUOTATION IN ENGLISH

“O SON OF JUSTICE! Whither can a lover go but to the land of his beloved? and what seeker findeth rest away from his heart’s desire? To the true lover reunion is life, and separation is death. His breast is void of patience and his heart hath no peace. A myriad lives he would forsake to hasten to the abode of his beloved.”
-Baha’u’llah
