Joseph Jacobs There was once upon a time a poor widow who had an only son named Jack, and a cow named Milky-white. And all they had to live on was the milk the cow gave every morning, which they carried to the market and sold. But one morn...

Glorified Art Thou, O My Lord! Thou Beholdest






Glorified art Thou, O my Lord! Thou beholdest my tribulations and all that
hath befallen me at the hands of such of Thy servants as keep company with
me, who have disbelieved in Thy most resplendent signs, and turned back
from Thy most effulgent Beauty. I swear by Thy glory! Such are the
troubles that vex me, that no pen in the entire creation can either reckon
or describe them.

I implore Thee, O Thou Who art the King of names and the Creator of earth
and heaven, so to assist me by Thy strengthening grace that nothing
whatsoever will have the power to hinder me from remembering Thee, or
celebrating Thy praise, or to keep me back from observing what Thou hast
prescribed unto me in Thy Tablets, that I may so arise to serve Thee that
with bared head I will hasten forth from my habitation, cry out in Thy
name amidst Thy creatures, and proclaim Thy virtues among Thy servants.
Having accomplished what Thou hadst decreed, and delivered the thing Thou
hadst written down, the wicked doers among Thy people would, then, compass
me about and would do with me in Thy path as would please them.

In the love I bear to Thee, O my Lord, my heart longeth for Thee with a
longing such as no heart hath known. Here am I with my body between Thy
hands, and my spirit before Thy face. Do with them as it may please Thee,
for the exaltation of Thy word, and the revelation of what hath been
enshrined within the treasuries of Thy knowledge.

Potent art Thou to do what Thou willest, and able to ordain what Thou
pleasest.
