6 Aban 1361[28 October 1982]

 

Moayyed! In the dark of the night

I behold your light

O light of all horizons. . . O Moayyed

 

In the dark of the night

I behold the light of your beauty and perfection

O luminous secret . . . O purified spirit

 

Know, know that Baha’u’llah is with you

 

And I!

Following you and your [pure] faith and your beauty

And I!

With the melody of my voice

Shall make the whole world hear that

At this moment, blood is being spilled on the ground

Every drop of which is a drop of Iran’s honour

 

Moayyed, Moayyed

Know that Baha’u’llah is with you
