O Thou Whose Face Is The Object Of The Adoration
O Thou Whose face is the object of the adoration of all that yearn after
Thee, Whose presence is the hope of such as are wholly devoted to Thy
will, Whose nearness is the desire of all that have drawn nigh unto Thy
court, Whose countenance is the companion of those who have recognized Thy
truth, Whose name is the mover of the souls that long to behold Thy face,
Whose voice is the true life of Thy lovers, the words of Whose mouth are
as the waters of life unto all who are in heaven and on earth!
I beseech Thee, by the wrong Thou hast suffered and the ills inflicted
upon Thee by the hosts of wrongful doers, to send down upon me from the
clouds of Thy mercy that which will purify me of all that is not of Thee,
that I may be worthy to praise Thee and fit to love Thee.
Withhold not from me, O my Lord, the things Thou didst ordain for such of
Thy handmaidens as circle around Thee, and on whom are poured continually
the splendors of the sun of Thy beauty and the beams of the brightness of
Thy face. Thou art He Who from everlasting hath succored whosoever hath
sought Thee, and bountifully favored him who hath asked Thee.
No God is there beside Thee, the Mighty, the Ever-Abiding, the
All-Bounteous, the Most Generous.
