Praised Be Thou, O My God! This Servant Of Thine






Praised be Thou, O my God! This servant of Thine testifieth that naught
else except Thee can ever express Thee, nor canst Thou be described by any
one save Thyself. The thoughts of them that have recognized Thy reality,
however much they may ascend towards the heaven of Thy praise, can never
hope to pass beyond the bounds which, by Thy behest and decree, have been
fixed within their own hearts. How can the creature who is as nothing
comprehend Him Who is the Ancient of Days, or succeed in describing the
full measure of His sovereignty, His glory, and His grandeur? Nay, and to
this Thou Thyself dost witness, O Thou Who art the Governor of nations!
Every created thing hath recognized its own impotence, and the power of
Thy might, and hath confessed its own abasement and Thy great glory.

I beseech Thee by Thy Lastness which is the same as Thy Firstness, and by
Thy Revelation which is identical with Thy Concealment, to grant that they
who are dear to Thee, and their children, and their kindred, may become
the revealers of Thy purity amidst Thy creatures, and the manifestations
of Thy sanctity amongst Thy servants.

Thou art, verily, powerful to do Thy pleasure. Thou art, in truth, the
Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.
