Krishna, Buddha, Zoroaster Abraham, Moses, Christ Muhammad, The Báb, Bahá'u'lláh The Spirit’s the same

Bahá'u'lláh teaches for today Tells us to look to the spirit Not to worship the Name Now we have automobiles, we have electric lights We can fly around, we can see a lot of sights World movements for human rights We can even take a trip to the moon Now some people say that these are terrible times But it’s a brand new day friends, these are the signs This life’s too great to just resign You’d better investigate soon What are these truths that we all should seek Well, how ‘bout a language that we all can speak Male and female equality – all kinds of prejudice are wrong Now religion and science both agree, about the Oneness of humanity God’s Faith should cause harmony just like this song Chastity, integrity Humanity and unity Our actions should cause unity and shine like a star All the people around can plainly see We handle ourselves a little differently They’ll know who we are. 50.
