button77041 How to exemplify the presence
of God? This song does it. What
a perfect melody for words
“no paradise more wondrous”.
At first unsure which syllable of
“wondrous” was the down-beat,
(and how many beats per phrase?)
- but to speak the words and breathe - the rhythm flows naturally. Intoxicatingly beautiful.

lyrics

Wondrous Paradise

There is no paradise more wondrous for any soul
than to be exposed to God's Manifestation in His Day,
to hear His verses and believe in them,
to attain His presence,
which is naught but the presence of God,
to sail upon the sea of the heavenly kingdom
of His good-pleasure,
and to partake of the choice fruits
of the paradise of His divine Oneness.

From the Persian Bayán, Váḥid 2, Chapter 16
Selections from the Writings of the Báb, p.77
