Here is the quotation in Spanish that the lyrics are based on:

“¡Oh Hijo del Trono! Tu oído es Mi oído, oye con él. Tu vista es Mi vista, mira con ella, para que en lo más íntimo de tu alma atestigües Mi exaltada santidad, y Yo dentro de Mi ser dé testimonio de una exaltada posición para ti.”
-Baha’u’llah

Here is an English translation of the quotation that the lyrics are based on:

“O Son of the Throne! Thy hearing is My hearing, hear thou therewith. Thy sight is My sight, do thou see therewith, that in thine inmost soul thou mayest testify unto My exalted sanctity, and I within Myself may bear witness unto an exalted station for thee.”
-Baha’u’llah
