A Tablet of ‘Abdu’l‑Bahá

Upon him be the Glory of the All-Glorious.

O thou who art serving at the Pilgrim House of the Lord! Thou art a servant, but in reality thou art ministered unto—a steward, but in truth master of all. The Spirit Jesus hath said:

“If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all and servant of all.”1 “And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant.”2

To serve the beloved of God is truly the principal role of this grief-stricken Servant. However, I am deprived of this service, but now thou hast won the day and adorned thine head with this glorious crown. We shall know in future what God hath decreed.

Convey Abhá greetings to Áqá Jamál, thy mother, and all the pilgrims. Upon thee be His glory!
