pen, subdued the concourse of Thy creation, and manifested the pearls of

the ocean of Thy wisdom through the words which Thy tongue hath spoken

before all who are in heaven and on earth. I testify that Thy might hath

encompassed the whole universe, and Thy mercy surpassed all created

things. The powers of the earth have never prevailed against Thee, nor

hath the tumult of the nations frustrated Thy purpose. Thou hast revealed
