Thou Seest, O My God, How The Wrongs Committed
Thou seest, O my God, how the wrongs committed by such of Thy creatures as
have turned their backs to Thee have come in between Him in Whom Thy
Godhead is manifest and Thy servants. Send down upon them, O my Lord, what
will cause them to be busied with each others' concerns. Let, then, their
violence be confined to their own selves, that the land and they that
dwell therein may find peace.
One of Thy handmaidens, O my Lord, hath sought Thy face, and soared in the
atmosphere of Thy pleasure. Withhold not from her, O my Lord, the things
Thou didst ordain for the chosen ones among Thy handmaidens. Enable her,
then, to be so attracted by Thine utterances that she will celebrate Thy
praise amongst them.
Potent art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee. No God is there but Thee, the
Almighty, Whose help is implored by all men.
