Lyrics for Eternal Beloved

I’d like to thank those of you who wrote comments on the previous blog about Eternal Beloved.  Thank you so much for your kind words!  I feel very supported by you all and was so touched by your comments.  In the last blog, I didn’t share much about the words of Eternal Beloved.  The lyrics were inspired by the writings of Baha’u’llah, particularly passages taken from the Fire Tablet.

I would usually describe more about the song but I want to keep the mystery of the meaning and allow you to interpret it for yourselves.  I would love to hear what the song means to you.  Here are the lyrics below:

Verse 1
Alone in the darkness of desolation
Where is the light of Thy love
My longing hands are lifted to heaven
Raise me up to the heavens above

O my beloved, my desire
O spirit of the worlds
The warmth of your love is wind to my fire
A priceless gift, a precious pearl

Verse 2
Consumed in the fire of separation
Send down the rain of thy grace
Awaiting the breezes of confirmation
Anticipating that wondrous place

O my beloved, my desire
O spirit of the worlds
Thy presence lifts me higher and higher
A priceless gift, a precious pearl
