Text from a selection in Gleanings from the Writings of Bah�'u'll�h sets the mood and inspiration for this song. It begins "Release yourselves, O nightingales of God, from the thorns and brambles of wretchedness and misery, and wing your flight to the rose-garden of unfading splendor….", I've worked images from this text into the lyrics and set them in the garden of Ridv�n: .. In a garden stands a man… who is 'the Best Beloved of all things. The listener is invited to break the chains of self through enraptured love of God and His Manifestation. Images from the Bible that speak to this day are also used: "Behold, I make all things new"; the 'stars' of the world, its kings and rulers, fall when they fail to heed the divine summons; "All eyes shall see Him" and 'Seek and ye shall find'. The tempo is moderately fast and the choruses are rousing. It's a joyful song from my Musical "Certitude" (1994).
