All Glory Be To Thee, O Lord My God! I Bear

All glory be to Thee, O Lord my God! I bear witness for Thee to that
whereto Thou Thyself didst bear witness for Thine own Self, ere the day
Thou hadst created the creation or made mention thereof, that Thou art
God, and that there is none other God beside Thee. From eternity Thou
hast, in Thy transcendent oneness, been immeasurably exalted above Thy
servants' conception of Thy unity, and wilt to eternity remain, in Thine
unapproachable singleness, far above the praise of Thy creatures. No words
that any one beside Thee may utter can ever beseem Thee, and no man's
description except Thine own description can befit Thy nature. All who
adore Thy unity have been sore perplexed to fathom the mystery of Thy
oneness, and all have confessed their powerlessness to attain unto the
comprehension of Thine essence and to scale the pinnacle of Thy knowledge.
The mighty have all acknowledged their weakness, and the learned
recognized their ignorance. They that are possessed of influence are as
nothing when compared with the revelations of Thy stupendous sovereignty,
and they who are exalted sink into oblivion when brought before the
manifestations of Thy great glory. The radiance of the brightest
luminaries is eclipsed by the effulgent splendors of Thy face, and the
tongues of the most eloquent of speakers falter under the unrestrained
effusions of Thy holy utterance, and the foundations of the mightiest
structures tremble before the onrushing force of Thy compelling power.

Who is there, O my God, that can be deemed worthy to be remembered when
Thou art remembered, and where is he to be found who can be regarded as
capable of hinting at Thy nature or worthy of mention in the court of Thy
transcendent oneness? From everlasting Thou hast been alone with no one
else beside Thee, and to everlasting Thou wilt continue to be one and the
same. No God is there beside Thee, the God of power, of glory and wisdom.

Glorified be Thy name, O Lord my God! I beseech Thee by Him Who is Thine
exalted and supreme Remembrance, Whom Thou hast sent down unto all Thy
creatures and invested with Thy name, the All-Glorious, Whose will Thou
hast ordained to be Thine own will, Whose self Thou hast decreed to be the
revealer of Thine own Self, and His essence the Day-Spring of Thy wisdom,
and His heart the treasury of Thine inspiration, and His breast the
dawning-place of Thy most excellent attributes and most exalted titles,
and His tongue the fountain-head of the waters of Thy praise and the
well-spring of the soft-flowing streams of Thy wisdom, to send down upon
us that which will enable us to dispense with all else except Thee, and
will cause us to direct our steps towards the sanctuary of Thy pleasure
and to aspire after the things Thou didst ordain for us according to Thine
irrevocable decree. Empower us, then, O my God, to forsake ourselves and
cleave steadfastly to Him Who is the Manifestation of Thy Self, the Most
Exalted, the Most High. Supply us also with that which is best for us, and
write us down with such of Thy servants as have repudiated the Idol (Mirza
Yahya), and firmly believed in Thee, and been so established on the throne
of certitude that the whisperings of the Evil One have been powerless to
hinder them from turning their faces towards Thy name, the All-Merciful.

Powerful art Thou to do what Thou pleasest and to ordain what Thou
willest. No God is there but Thee, the All-Possessing, the All-Highest,
the Almighty, the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
