This song was filmed and recorded in Vancouver, Canada, January 2017.

Here is the quotation used for the lyrics below followed by the quotation and chords:

“Pass by whatever exists in this world and find Me. I am the Sun of Perception and the Ocean of Science. I revive the withered ones and quicken the dead. I am that Light which illumines the path of Insight. I am the Falcon of the Hand of the Almighty; I bear healing in My wings and teach the knowledge of soaring to the Heaven of Truth.”
– Baha’u’llah

Pass by whatever exists in this world and find Me
I am the Sun of Perception and the Ocean of Science
I revive the withered ones and quicken the dead
I am that Light which illumines the path of Insight
I am the Falcon of the Hand of the Almighty;
I bear healing in My wings and teach the knowledge of soaring to the Heaven of Truth

  1. Beautiful! Just a comment regarding the source though. I think this quote is from Bahá’u’lláh from a letter He wrote to the Zoroastrian Bahá’ís (see Star of the West Vol. 1:1 March 21 1910), not ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

    1. Hi Paolo,

      Yes, you are right. We have made the necessary corrections. Thank you so much for noticing this error and for pointing it out.

  2. Dear authors,

    About the source quoted above. I have not been able to find the portion you have quoted from the writings of Baha’u’llah himself (“Pass by whatever exists in this world and find Me. I am the Sun of Perception and the Ocean of Science. I revive the withered ones and quicken the dead. I am that Light which illumines the path of Insight. I am the Falcon of the Hand of the Almighty; I bear healing in My wings and teach the knowledge of soaring to the Heaven of Truth.”)

    Rather, the song lyrics seem to be derived from a section from the tabernacle of unity which Baha’u’llah wrote which reads as follows;

    “The Tongue of Wisdom proclaimeth: He that hath Me not is bereft of all things. Turn ye away from all that is on earth and seek none else but Me. I am the Sun of Wisdom and the Ocean of Knowledge. I cheer the faint and revive the dead. I am the guiding Light that illumineth the way. I am the royal Falcon on the arm of the Almighty. I unfold the drooping wings of every broken bird and start it on its flight.”

    It would thus be necessary to remove the direct quotations above and remove that it is from Baha’u’llah as the singers’ lyrics are a personal derivation inspired by the words of Baha’u’llah and not the writings themselves.

    Kind Regards

    1. Dear Shirin,

      Thank you so much for your very kind and thoughtful comment. We are so grateful to you for looking into the lyrics of this song so closely.

      You are right that the lyrics are derived from a passage that can be found in The Tabernacle of Unity. The words used for the lyrics are from an earlier translation of the same tablet. This earlier translation was quoted in Star of the West (Vol. 1:1 March 21 1910). Although we now have The Tabernacle of Unity as an authorized translation of this tablet, we nevertheless felt that the lyrics of this song can be considered as based on the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

      Thank you for paying such close attention and for your kind suggestion.
