O Son of Being! Love Me, that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can in no wise reach thee. Know this, O servant! -Baha'u'llah, Arabic Hidden Words, #5.

Alone in the darkness of desolation Where is the light of Thy love My longing hands are lifted to heaven Raise me up to the heavens above O My beloved, my desire O spirit of the worlds The warmth of your love is wind to my fire A priceless gift, a precious pearl Consumed in the fire of separation Send down the rain of thy grace Awaiting the breezes of confirmation Anticipating that wondrous place O my beloved, my desire O spirit of the worlds Thy presence lifts me higher and higher A priceless gift, a precious pearl

Verse 1 I set my face towards Thee Striving for my (some) sanity Deprive me not of drawing near to Thee I'm Craving for your mercy Chorus Thy wish is my desire Thy pleasure my delight Thy love my aim, Thy face my goal Bring me out of darkness, into the light x2 Verse 2 My gaze is fixed on you love Forgive me for turning away You're an angel from above There's no limit to what faith can do Bridge My Adored One, My King, My Desire How can I voice my thanks to Thee My Adored One, My King, My Desire

The passions of life taunt every move Trying to resist the waves of desire The soul is called to a mystical realm Striving to soar to a higher plane Chorus Feel the flame Drawing you into the edge of forever It calls your name Raising you up from this mortal world Like a vapour in a desert This world is so fleeting The realm of eternity is everlasting Feel the eternal Drawing you into the edge of forever It calls your name Raising you up from this mortal world Bridge My spirit calls to me An island of peace in the madness of life The passions of life taunt every move Trying to resist the waves of desire Feel the flame Drawing you into the edge of forever It calls your name Raising you up from this mortal world

Verse 1 Listen to my voice I have made the choice To open my heart To share just how I feel My heart has been set aflame Your guidance helps me gain The knowledge that draws me close to you Chorus 1: You set me free You help me see who i really am I want to be that person you see When you treasure me Drawing me in This force from within, Awakening me Bringing new life to my soul So that I can see Listen to how I feel I’m just telling you how I feel Verse 2 You know my soul, (You know my soul) echo Guiding my role in this fleeting world Setting me aglow (setting me aglow) echo Chorus 2 You set me free You help me see who i really am I want to be that person you see How you treasure me! Drawing me in This force from within, Awakening me Bringing new life to my soul So that I can see Listen to how I feel I’m just telling you how I feel Bridge Somehow I know when you’re near You take away my fears Accept me for who I am Helping me to be all I can I’m just telling you how I feel I want you to know it’s real

Verse1: You've been gone so long I wish I were strong Never imagined how I'd feel This broken heart needs time to heal Verse 2: Knowing you're so far I treasure who you are A million memories flood my mind A precious love most will never find Chorus: I will always remember you No one knows you like I do I will forever remember you And how Love came shining through Verse 3: Can't believe it's true No one cares the way you do Awakening me so that I can see Showing me how its meant to be Chorus: I will always remember you It's amazing what love can do I will forever remember you Bridge: I sacrifice so you can go There's something that you ought to know That I miss you, miss you Chorus: I will always remember you It's amazing what love can do I will forever you You know what I'm going through (prolongued) How I miss you How I miss you How.... I miss you

Verse 1 I can feel you next to me There's no place I'd rather be Though you're so far away You always know what to say Chorus You'll always be by my side My loving, enduring guide You'll always be there for me By my side for eternity Verse 2 I know you're always there Showing me how much you care When i doubt that you'll be there Its more than my heart can bare Chorus You'll always be by my side My loving, enduring guide You'll always be there for me Here now and will always be Bridge You'll always be by my side Wiping tears I cry When it seems like no one cares You are there with every prayer Chorus You'll always be by my side My loving, enduring guide You'll always be there for me By my side for eternity

When a thought of war comes, oppose it by a stronger thought of peace. A thought of hatred must be destroyed by a more powerful thought of love. (Abdu'l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 29)

Persecution They dedicated their lives to a noble purpose Innocent victims, Imprisoned for their beliefs Their suffering knew no bounds Only comforted by prayerful sounds Their children suffer the same fate Subjected to an endless hate Denied basic human rights Yet guided by a greater light Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing Prevent the truth from showing You can't block the sun from shining Pressured to recant their faith Their Holy Places destroyed, Their graves unearthed, no place to bury their dead Denied the right for education Riddled with false accusations Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing Prevent the truth from showing You can't block the sun from shining You can burn their homes but not their spirits Seize their land but not their souls Why do you think you can stop the world from knowing Prevent the truth from showing You can't block the sun from shining Why do you think you can block the sun You can't stop us from shining Seize our land but not our souls Why.... do you think you can stop the world from knowing Prevent the truth from showing
