Another Bahai prayer in Farsi recorded at home on a minidisc of a friend of mine singing the following prayer: (translation)
O thou art turning thy face towards God! Close thine eyes to all else, and open them to the realm of the All Glorious. Ask whatsoever thou wishest of Him alone; seek whatsoever thou seekest from Him alone. With a look He granteth a hundred thousand hopes. He healeth a hundred thousand incurable ills, with a nod He layeth balm on every wound, with a glimpse. He freeth the hearts from the shackles of grif. He doeth as He doeth, and what recourse have we? He carrieth out His will, He ordaineth what he pleaseth. Then better for thee to bow down thy head in submission, and put thy trust in the All Mercifull Lord.

The language is old fashioned because the Bahai have special requirements about maintaining the integrity of their texts. It is a verbatim quote from an english prayer book. In Farsi, for instance, I believe that the masculine gender of God is absent and is really non-specific.
