Light of the Holy Spirit: To The Bab
Light of the Holy Spirit:
To The Bab

"I am the Mystic Fane which the Hand of Omnipotence hath reared. I am the Lamp which the Finger of God hath lit within its niche and caused to shine with deathless splendor. I am the Flame of that supernal Light that glowed upon Sinai in the gladsome Spot, and lay concealed in the midst of the Burning Bush."
The Bab1

The Light of the Holy Spirit
shines from the Lamp of God's Word
illuminating
both the east and the west,
both the north and the south.

The Flame of the Holy Spirit,
which illuminated Sinai
and blazed in the Burning Bush,
glows again
in The Gate of God2.
