Lyrics & Quote

SWEDISH

Allt pris tillkomme Dig, o min Gud, som är källan till all härlighet och allt majestät, till storhet och ära, till överhöghet och herravälde, till höghet och nåd, till vördnad och kraft! Vemhelst Du önskar låter Du närma sig den största oceanen, och vemhelst Du önskar skänker Du äran av att erkänna Ditt mest uråldriga namn. Av alla som är i himmelen och på jorden kan ingen motstå utövandet av Din allenarådande vilja. I all evighet har Du härskat över hela skapelsen och Du skall fortsätta att för alltid utöva Ditt herravälde över allt skapat. Det finns ingen Gud utom Du, den Allsmäktige, den mest Upphöjde, den Allstarke, den Allvise.

Lys upp, o Herre, Dina tjänares anleten att de må skåda Dig, och rena deras hjärtan att de må vända sig till Din himmelska ynnests förgård och erkänna Honom, som är uppenbararen av Ditt Jag och Ditt väsens morgongryning. Sannerligen, Du är alla världars Herre. Det finns ingen Gud utom Du, den Obundne, den Allbetvingande.

Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH

All praise, O my God, be to Thee Who art the Source of all glory and majesty, of greatness and honor, of sovereignty and dominion, of loftiness and grace, of awe and power. Whomsoever Thou willest Thou causest to draw nigh unto the Most Great Ocean, and on whomsoever Thou desirest Thou conferrest the honor of recognizing Thy Most Ancient Name. Of all who are in heaven and on earth, none can withstand the operation of Thy sovereign Will. From all eternity Thou didst rule the entire creation, and Thou wilt continue for evermore to exercise Thy dominion over all created things. There is none other God but Thee, the Almighty, The Most Exalted, the All-Powerful, the All-Wise.

Illumine, O Lord, the faces of Thy servants, that they may behold Thee; and cleanse their hearts that they may turn unto the court of Thy heavenly favors, and recognize Him Who is the Manifestation of Thy Self and the Dayspring of Thine Essence. Verily, Thou art the Lord of all worlds. There is no God but Thee, the Unconstrained, the All-Subduing.

Baha’u’llah
