When I think of the whole of creation
Via the Powers of Ten,
Moving quickly from
the world of quarks in plasma with gluons,
To our Local Group of Galaxies,
Knowing we are part of this wonder,
I also see that life is always being regenerated
And made new.
before the entire creation,
the name of God, and celebrate His praise,
in such wise that all created things
may be regenerated and made new.
Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah,
Every thing must needs
have an origin and every building a builder.
Verily, the Word of God is the Cause
which hath preceded the contingent world –
a world which is adorned
with the splendours of the Ancient of Days,
yet is being renewed and regenerated at all times.
Immeasurably exalted is
the God of Wisdom Who hath
raised this sublime structure.
Tablets of Baha'u'llah
