Celebrating the two hundredth Anniversaries of The Birth of Baha'u'llah and The Bab
For This Is The Immortal Youth
"Lo, the gates of Paradise were unlocked, and the hallowed Youth came forth bearing a serpent plain.1 Rejoice! This is the immortal Youth, come with crystal waters."
Revealed in the rear sixty,3
Rejoice! For God's promise kept.
Sip the crystal waters
of divine knowledge
that flow through the Gate of God.
He is the immortal Youth;
He is blessed with an ancient light:
He is blessed with the Holy Spirit.
Rejoice! This is the immortal Youth,
Come with a new heaven and a new earth
And proclaiming Him Whom God Will Make Manifest.4
This is the immortal Youth,
Carrying the keys to humanity's salvation
Announcing the good new of Baha'u'llah.
Rejoice! He is the Gate of God.
Rejoice! He is the Primal Point from
Which the knowledge of the past and future flows.
