I Wanted To Mention Your Name Today







I wanted to mention Your Name today
But so many things just got in the way
The laundry had to be done
The cats had to be fed
It took all of my energy just to get out of bed.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
But when I got into work it was just the same
Both phones were ringing everyone calling my name
A line of customers waiting to complain
It took all my energy just to get through the day.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
But I was late leaving the store
Then the meeting started at eight
So many things on the agenda just could not wait
It took all of my energy just to get home safe.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
But by the time I got home it was late
The cats had to be fed
There were dishes all over the place
It took all my energy just to check the mail.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
I wanted to make time to pray
I wanted to feel You near
I wanted You to soothe my pain
I wanted You to restore my energy.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
Now the day is gone
And there's just this emptiness inside
This sorrow that I missed my Friend
A loneliness left deep inside.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
Now it's all slipped away
So many days have slipped away
Now it gets harder and harder to pray
I have no energy on any day.




I wanted to mention Your Name today
It's been so long - I need help to pray
I've closed my eyes and refused to hear
So I forgot how close You're standing near
Then I heard You whisper in my ear.




Make mention of My Name today
And I will free you from this pain
Utter just one simple word
I'll open your eyes to all the worlds
Feel My arms wrapped around your soul
You are My child I have never let you go
So mention My Name today
And free yourself from all this pain.

Fear thou God, thy Lord,
and make mention of His Name
in the day-time and at eventide.
(Compilations, Fire and Light)
By the righteousness of God!
Whoso openeth his lips in this Day
and maketh mention of the name of his Lord,
the hosts of Divine inspiration
shall descend upon him from the heaven of My name,
the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

(Baha'u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha'u'llah, p. 280)
