Track Name: Create in Me a Pure Heart
Create in me a pure heart, O my God, and renew a tranquil conscience within me, O my Hope! Through the spirit of power confirm Thou me in Thy Cause, O my Best-Beloved, and by the light of Thy glory reveal unto me Thy path, O Thou the Goal of my desire! Through the power of Thy transcendent might lift me up unto the heaven of Thy holiness, O Source of my being, and by the breezes of Thine eternity gladden me, O Thou Who art my God! Let Thine everlasting melodies breathe tranquillity on me, O my Companion, and let the riches of Thine ancient countenance deliver me from all except Thee, O my Master, and let the tidings of the revelation of Thine incorruptible Essence bring me joy, O Thou Who art the most manifest of the manifest and the most hidden of the hidden!

- Prayers and Meditations by Bahá’u’lláh, CLV
Track Name: Garden of Thy Heart
O FRIEND!
In the garden of thy heart plant naught but the rose of love, and from the nightingale of affection and desire loosen not thy hold. Treasure the companionship of the righteous and eschew all fellowship with the ungodly. - The Hidden Words of Bahá'u'lláh, Part 2, No. 3
Track Name: The Light of Unity
God grant that the light of unity may envelop the whole earth, and that the seal, “the Kingdom is God’s”, may be stamped upon the brow of all its peoples. - Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá'u'lláh, VII
Track Name: Have You Heard
Have You Heard?

Have you heard of the troubles of Moses?
So much light on the earth He did shed.
All the people, they rose up against Him
and they rained down their darts on His head.

He came with a message of peace, love and justice
and the promise of a Great One to come
when the wolf and the lamb will dwell together
and the whole human race will be one.

Have you heard of the sufferings of Jesus?
How pure and selfless He was.
All the people, they rose up against Him
and put God’s only Son on a cross.

He came with a message of peace, love and justice
and the promise of a Great One to come
when on earth it will be as in Heaven
and the whole human race will be one.

Have you heard of the sorrows of Buddha
when He looked at the sadness of man?
All the people, they rose up against Him
and put nothing but sadness in His hands.

He came with a message of peace, love and justice
and the promise of a Great One to come
when peace shall reign on earth forever
and the whole human race will be one.

Have you heard of the woes of Muhammad?
All the bruises and abuses He bore
All the people, they rose up against Him
and they closed in His face every door.

He came with a message of peace, love and justice
and the promise of a Great One to come
when all the people will be gathered together
and the whole human race will be one.

Now I don’t ask you to believe me
when I tell you Bahá’u’lláh has come.
I just ask you, my brother, to see me
and the whole human race as one.
