Redeem code

Track Name: Hollow Reed
“O God! Make me a hollow reed from which the pith of self hath been blown, that I may become a clear channel through which Thy love may flow to others.”
Track Name: Hearts
“Earth and heaven cannot contain Me; what can alone contain Me is the heart of him that believeth in Me, and is faithful to My Cause.” Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh XCIII

“Let the flame of search burn with such fierceness within your hearts as to enable you to attain your supreme and most exalted goal—the station at which ye can draw nigh unto, and be united with, your Best-Beloved....” Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, CLIII

“How bewildering to me, insignificant as I am, is the attempt to fathom the sacred depths of Thy knowledge! How futile my efforts to visualize the magnitude of the power inherent in Thine handiwork—the revelation of Thy creative power! How can mine eye, which hath no faculty to perceive itself, claim to have discerned Thine Essence, and how can mine heart, already powerless to apprehend the significance of its own potentialities, pretend to have comprehended Thy nature? How can I claim to have known Thee, when the entire creation is bewildered by Thy mystery, and how can I confess not to have known Thee, when, lo, the whole universe proclaimeth Thy Presence and testifieth to Thy truth?” Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, XXVI
Track Name: Humble
"If thou seekest eternal glory, let thyself be humble and meek in the presence of the beloved of God; make thyself the servant of all, and serve all alike. The service of the friends belongs to God, not to them. Strive to become a source of harmony, spirituality and joyfulness to the hearts of the friends and the maid-servants of the Merciful. This is a cause of great satisfaction to Abdul-Baha." Abdu’l-Baha, Tablets of Abdu'l-Baha vol.1, pp. 61-62
Track Name: Praise
“Praise be to God Lord of all creatures.” Muhammad, Qur’an, Sura 10:10
“Peace. Peace.” Muhammad, Qur’an
Ya Bahá’u’l-Abhá (O Glory of the Most Glorious)
Track Name: Still
“O My servants! Were ye to discover the hidden, the shoreless oceans of My incorruptible wealth, ye would, of a certainty, esteem as nothing the world, nay, the entire creation. Let the flame of search burn with such fierceness within your hearts as to enable you to attain your supreme and most exalted goal—the station at which ye can draw nigh unto, and be united with, your Best-Beloved....” - Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, CLIII
Track Name: Baha
Ya Bahá’u’l-Abhá (O Glory of the Most Glorious)
Ya `Abdu’l-Bahá (O Servant of Glory)
