Cling

Certain people seem to be entirely bereft of understanding. By clinging to the cord of idle fancy they have debarred themselves from the Sure Handle. I swear by My life! Were they to reflect a while with fairness on that which the All-Merciful hath sent down, they would, one and all, spontaneously give utterance to these words, 'Verily Thou art the Truth, the manifest Truth.

Bahá’u’lláh, Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 242

Cling thou to the hem of the Robe of God, and take thou firm hold on His Cord, a Cord which none can sever.

Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 307

Cling unto the robe of the Desire of thy heart, and put thou away all shame; bid the worldlywise be gone, however great their name.

Bahá’u’lláh, The Ki tab-i-Ian, p. 69

Cling ye to the hem of virtue, and hold fast to the cord of trustworthiness and piety.

Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 29

Cling, O ye people of Bahá, to the cord of servitude unto God, the True One, for thereby your stations shall be made manifest, your names written and preserved, your ranks raised and your memory exalted in the Preserved Tablet. Beware lest the dwellers on earth hinder you from this glorious and exalted station.

Bahá’u’lláh, The Kitáb-i-Aqdas, p. 62

Direct, then, his eyes, O my God, towards the horizon of Thy loving-kindness, and make steadfast his heart in its attachment to Thee, and unloose his tongue to praise Thee, and make him able to hold fast the cord of Thy love, and to cling to the hem of Thy bounteousness, and to proclaim Thy name amidst Thy creatures, and to recount Thy virtues throughout Thy realm, in such wise that no obstacle will deter him from turning to Thy name, the All-Bountiful, and no veil shut him out from Thee, in Whose hand is the dominion of utterance and the kingdom of all names and attributes!
