about

Standing on the top floor of the Sarah Farmer Inn in Eliot, Maine gazing out, as Abdu'l Baha must have, over the rolling grounds and the Piscataqua River.

lyrics

Eyes that watch this river run, slowly to the sea
Now this place where you once stood, is calling out to me
Eyes that call me to the cause and to a brand new day
Empowered by their passion to find a better way

Would that I could gaze upon, the things that you have seen
Would that I could follow in the places you have been
Abdul’Baha, Abdul’Baha
Just a glimpse of glory you have seen

Eyes that bear such fury, fan the flames of this wildfire
Yet mirror the compassion of this broken heart’s desire

Would that I could gaze upon, the things that you have seen
Would that I could follow in the places you have been
Abdul’Baha, Abdul’Baha
Just a glimpse of glory you have seen

Your eyes see all the sorrow this old world has ever known
But cradled in their gentle glow, I do not feel alone

Would that I could gaze upon, the things that you have seen
Would that I could follow in the places you have been
Abdul’Baha, Abdul’Baha
Just a glimpse of glory I have seen
