Magnified Art Thou, O Lord My God! I Ask Thee
Magnified art Thou, O Lord my God! I ask Thee by Thy Name which Thou hast
set up above all other names, through which the veil of heaven hath been
split asunder and the Day-Star of Thy beauty hath risen above the horizon,
shining with the brightness of Thy Name, the Exalted, the Most High, to
succor me with Thy wondrous help and to preserve me in the shelter of Thy
care and protection.
I am one of Thy handmaidens, O my Lord! Unto Thee have I turned, and in
Thee have I placed my trust. Grant that I may be so confirmed in my love
for Thee, and in fulfilling that which is well-pleasing unto Thee, that
neither the defection of the infidels among Thy people, nor the clamor of
the hypocrites among Thy creatures, may avail to keep me back from Thee.
Purge Thou mine ear, O my Lord, that I may hearken unto the verses sent
down unto Thee, and illuminate my heart with the light of Thy knowledge,
and loose my tongue that it may make mention of Thee and sing Thy praise.
By Thy might, O my God! My soul is wedded to none beside Thee, and my
heart seeketh none except Thine own Self.
No God is there beside Thee, the All-Glorious, the Great Giver, the
Forgiving, the Compassionate.
