Lyrics & Quote
¡Oh Mis queridos amigos! Sois los portadores del nombre de Dios en este Día. Habéis sido elegidos como los depositarios de Su misterio.Os incumbe a cada uno de vosotros manifestar los atributos de Dios y ejemplificar por vuestras acciones y palabras, los signos de Su rectitud, Su poder y gloria. Los mismos miembros de vuestro cuerpo deben dar testimonio de lo exaltado de vuestro propósito, la integridad de vuestra vida, la realidad de vuestra fe y el elevado carácter de vuestra devoción… …Sois como el fuego que en la oscuridad de la noche ha sido encendido en la cima de la montaña. Dejad que vuestra luz brille ante los ojos de los hombres.The Bab
O My beloved friends! You are the bearers of the name of God in this Day. You have been chosen as the repositories of His mystery. It behoves each one of you to manifest the attributes of God, and to exemplify by your deeds and words the signs of His righteousness, His power and glory. The very members of your body must bear witness to the loftiness of your purpose, the integrity of your life, the reality of your faith, and the exalted character of your devotion… … Ye are even as the fire which in the darkness of the night has been kindled upon the mountain-top. Let your light shine before the eyes of men.The Bab
