Like jasmine in summer
Like jewels in a crown
Perfections of perfume and light
Asíyih, Bahíyyih, Munírih Khánum,
Surround us and guide us this night.
Dear mother, dear sister,
Dear daughter and wife,
The tales of your service live on.
The light of the candle you lift to our eyes
Illumines the dark before dawn.
With deepest of yearning
With highest of hope
We search for your lives in our own.
And if we are lucky and blessed with His grace,
We’ll follow your path to our home.
