Let Nothing Grieve Thee O Land Of Ta
Let nothing grieve thee, O Land of Ta (Tihran), for God hath chosen thee
to be the source of the joy of all mankind. He shall, if it be His Will,
bless thy throne with one who will rule with justice, who will gather
together the flock of God which the wolves have scattered. Such a ruler
will, with joy and gladness, turn his face towards, and extend his favors
unto, the people of Baha. He indeed is accounted in the sight of God as a
jewel among men. Upon him rest forever the glory of God, and the glory of
all that dwell in the kingdom of His revelation.
Rejoice with great joy, for God hath made thee "the Day Spring of His
light," inasmuch as within thee was born the Manifestation of His Glory.
Be thou glad for this name that hath been conferred upon thee--a name
through which the Day Star of grace hath shed its splendor, through which
both earth and heaven have been illumined.
Ere long will the state of affairs within thee be changed, and the reins
of power fall into the hands of the people. Verily, thy Lord is the
All-Knowing. His authority embraceth all things. Rest thou assured in the
gracious favor of thy Lord. The eye of His loving-kindness shall
everlastingly be directed towards thee. The day is approaching when thy
agitation will have been transmuted into peace and quiet calm. Thus hath
it been decreed in the wondrous Book.
