This is a Day, the Light of which Thou hast sanctified above the sun and its effulgence. Thou hast called it "The Day of God!" Nothing is to be seen therein but Thy Supreme Self, and naught is to be remembered save Thy sweetest Name. Wherefore, when He appeared, the foundations of nations trembled, the learned were bewildered and the wise men were confounded, save those who came near unto Thee, took from the hand of Favor the pure wine of Thy Inspiration, and drank in Thy Name, saying:
"Praise be unit Thee, O Desire of the nations! Praise be to Thee, O Beloved of the hearts of the yearning!"
- Baha’u’llah (Star of the West, vol. 5, no. 1, March 21, 1914)
