One Sovereign

One Sovereign, One Fashioner
One Sufficing One
One Peerless One, One Healing One
One Self-Subsisting One
One Upraiser, Lord of Joy
One All-knowing One
One Enkindler, One Beloved
One Abiding One.
Buddha, Christ, Mohammed
Recast the old criterion
Manifesting, step by step
The way to maturation
Cultivating, age to age
Expanding consciousness
Preparing for the revelation of
The Greatest Name.
Through pen and deed
Bahá has shone
The brilliance of His light
The sun in midday splendor could
But envy such lucidity
Guiding every conscious being
Closer to the Threshold
The ways to know and love Him
Now continue to unfold.
