A Hundred Thousand Hopes

from Songs of Solace by Elika Mahony



An inspiring passage from 'Abdu'l-Bahá that reminds us to turn towards God and seek whatsoever we wish from Him alone.
This piece is a duet with talented singer, Fiona Doomun-Rouhani.
This piece is from the album 'Infinite Bounty'.


“O thou who art turning thy face towards God! Close thine eyes to all things else, and open them to the realm of the All-Glorious. Ask whatsoever thou wishest of Him alone; seek whatsoever thou seekest from Him alone. With a look He granteth a hundred thousand hopes, with a glance He healeth a hundred thousand incurable ills, with a nod He layeth balm on every wound, with a glimpse He freeth the hearts from the shackles of grief. He doeth as He doeth, and what recourse have we? He carrieth out His Will, He ordaineth what He pleaseth. Then better for thee to bow down thy head in submission, and put thy trust in the All-Merciful Lord.”

(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, p. 51)
