Glory To Thee, O My God! One Of Thy Handmaidens,
Glory to Thee, O my God! One of Thy handmaidens, who hath believed in Thee
and in Thy signs, hath entered beneath the shadow of the tree of Thy
oneness. Give her to quaff, O my God, by Thy Name, the Manifest and the
Hidden, of Thy choice sealed Wine that it may take her away from her own
self, and make her to be entirely devoted to Thy remembrance, and wholly
detached from any one beside Thee.
Now that Thou hast revealed unto her the knowledge of Thee, O my Lord,
deny her not, by Thy bounty, Thy grace; and now that Thou hast called her
unto Thyself, drive her not away from Thee, through Thy favor. Supply her,
then, with that which excelleth all that can be found on Thine earth. Thou
art, verily, the Most Bountiful, Whose grace is immense.
Wert Thou to bestow on one of Thy creatures what would equal the kingdoms
of earth and heaven, it would still not diminish by even as much as an
atom the immensity of Thy dominion. Far greater art Thou than the Great
One men are wont to call Thee, for such a title is but one of Thy names
all of which were created by a mere indication of Thy will.
There is no God but Thee, the God of power, the God of glory, the God of
knowledge and wisdom.
