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

QUOTATION IN SPANISH:

¡Oh Mi Siervo! Eres como una espada de excelente temple oculta en la oscuridad de la vaina y cuyo valor es desconocido para el artífice. Por tanto sal de la vaina del yo y del deseo para que tu valor se haga manifiesto y resplandeciente ante todo el mundo.
-Baha’u’llah

QUOTATION IN ENGLISH:

“O MY SERVANT! Thou art even as a finely tempered sword concealed in the darkness of its sheath and its value hidden from the artificer’s knowledge. Wherefore come forth from the sheath of self and desire that thy worth may be made resplendent and manifest unto all the world.”
-Baha’u’llah
