All-praise Be To Thee, O Lord, My God! I Know






All-praise be to Thee, O Lord, my God! I know not how to sing Thy praise,
how to describe Thy glory, how to call upon Thy Name. If I call upon Thee
by Thy Name, the All-Possessing, I am compelled to recognize that He Who
holdeth in His hand the immediate destinies of all created things is but a
vassal dependent upon Thee, and is the creation of but a word proceeding
from Thy mouth. And if I proclaim Thee by the name of Him Who is the
All-Compelling, I readily discover that He is but a suppliant fallen upon
the dust, awe-stricken by Thy dreadful might, Thy sovereignty and power.
And if I attempt to describe Thee by glorifying the oneness of Thy Being,
I soon realize that such a conception is but a notion which mine own fancy
hath woven, and that Thou hast ever been immeasurably exalted above the
vain imaginations which the hearts of men have devised.

The glory of Thy might beareth me witness! Whoso claimeth to have known
Thee hath, by virtue of such a claim, testified to his own ignorance; and
whoso believeth himself to have attained unto Thee, all the atoms of the
earth would attest his powerlessness and proclaim his failure. Thou hast,
however, by virtue of Thy mercy that hath surpassed the kingdoms of earth
and heaven, deigned to accept from Thy servants the laud and honor they
pay to Thine own exalted Self, and hast bidden them celebrate Thy glory,
that the ensigns of Thy guidance may be unfurled in Thy cities and the
tokens of Thy mercy be spread abroad among Thy nations, and that each and
all may be enabled to attain unto that which Thou hast destined for them
by Thy decree, and ordained unto them through Thine irrevocable will and
purpose.

Having testified, therefore, unto mine own impotence and the impotence of
Thy servants, I beseech Thee, by the brightness of the light of Thy
beauty, not to refuse Thy creatures attainment to the shores of Thy most
holy ocean. Draw them, then, O my God, through the Divine sweetness of Thy
melodies, towards the throne of Thy glory and the seat of Thine eternal
holiness. Thou art, verily, the Most Powerful, the Supreme Ruler, the
Great Giver, the Most Exalted, the Ever-Desired.

Grant, then, O my God, that Thy servant who hath turned towards Thee, hath
fixed his gaze upon Thee, and clung to the cord of Thy mercifulness and
favor, may be enabled to partake of the living waters of Thy mercy and
grace. Cause him, then, to ascend unto the heights to which he aspireth,
and withhold him not from that which Thou dost possess. Thou art, verily,
the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Bountiful.
