Chant the Words of God and, pondering over their meaning, transform them into actions.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v1, p. 85)
Learn well this Tablet, O Ahmad. Chant it during thy days and withhold not thyself therefrom. For verily, God hath ordained for the one who chants it, the reward of a hundred martyrs and a service in both worlds. These favors have We bestowed upon thee as a bounty on Our part and a mercy from Our presence, that thou mayest be of those who are grateful.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Tablet of Ahmad, Bahá’í Prayers, p. 211)
To teach one’s children to chant the holy verses in the Mashriqu’l-Adhkar (Bahá’u’lláh, The Kitáb-i-Aqdas, p. 160)
Verily pure hearts are as clear and brilliant mirrors which imprint the one on the other, and hearts discover the secrets of hearts. Therefore, they (hearts) chant the verses of longing and recite the odes of glorification and praise. Consequently, the recourse is to pages of hearts, not pages filled with written lines.
