I Beseech Thee, O My God, By Thy Mighty Sign,





I beseech Thee, O my God, by Thy mighty Sign, and by the revelation of Thy

grace amongst men, to cast me not away from the gate of the city of Thy

presence, and to disappoint not the hopes I have set on the manifestations

of Thy grace amidst Thy creatures. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy

Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great,

the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe

to which have clung all in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by Thy most sweet Voice and by Thy most exalted

Word, to draw me ever nearer to the threshold of Thy door, and to suffer

me not to be far removed from the shadow of Thy mercy and the canopy of

Thy bounty. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy,

the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the

Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all

in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by the splendor of Thy luminous brow and the

brightness of the light of Thy countenance, which shineth from the

all-highest horizon, to attract me by the fragrance of Thy raiment, and

make me drink of the choice wine of Thine utterance. Thou seest me, O my

God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most

Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging

to the hem of the robe to which have clung all in this world and in the

world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by Thy hair which moveth across Thy face, even

as Thy most exalted pen moveth across the pages of Thy Tablets, shedding

the musk of hidden meanings over the kingdom of Thy creation, so to raise

me up to serve Thy Cause that I shall not fall back, nor be hindered by

the suggestions of them who have caviled at Thy signs and turned away from

Thy face. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the

Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most

Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all in

this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by Thy Name which Thou hast made the King of

Names, by which all who are in heaven and all who are on earth have been

enraptured, to enable me to gaze on the Day-Star of Thy Beauty, and to

supply me with the wine of Thine utterance. Thou seest me, O my God,

holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty,

the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the

hem of the robe to which have clung all in this world and in the world to

come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by the Tabernacle of Thy majesty upon the

loftiest summits, and the Canopy of Thy Revelation on the highest hills,

to graciously aid me to do what Thy will hath desired and Thy purpose hath

manifested. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy,

the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the

Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all

in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by Thy Beauty that shineth forth above the

horizon of eternity, a Beauty before which as soon as it revealeth itself

the kingdom of beauty boweth down in worship, magnifying it in ringing

tones, to grant that I may die to all that I possess and live to

whatsoever belongeth unto Thee. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy

Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great,

the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe

to which have clung all in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by the Manifestation of Thy Name, the

Well-Beloved, through Whom the hearts of Thy lovers were consumed and the

souls of all that dwell on earth have soared aloft, to aid me to remember

Thee amongst Thy creatures, and to extol Thee amidst Thy people. Thou

seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous,

the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and

clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all in this world and

in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by the rustling of the Divine Lote-Tree and the

murmur of the breezes of Thine utterance in the kingdom of Thy names, to

remove me far from whatsoever Thy will abhorreth, and draw me nigh unto

the station wherein He Who is the Day-Spring of Thy signs hath shone

forth. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the

Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most

Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all in

this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by that Letter which, as soon as it proceeded

out of the mouth of Thy will, hath caused the oceans to surge, and the

winds to blow, and the fruits to be revealed, and the trees to spring

forth, and all past traces to vanish, and all veils to be rent asunder,

and them who are devoted to Thee to hasten unto the light of the

countenance of their Lord, the Unconstrained, to make known unto me what

lay hid in the treasuries of Thy knowledge and concealed within the

repositories of Thy wisdom. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name,

the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the

Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to

which have clung all in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by the fire of Thy love which drove sleep from

the eyes of Thy chosen ones and Thy loved ones, and by their remembrance

and praise of Thee at the hour of dawn, to number me with such as have

attained unto that which Thou hast sent down in Thy Book and manifested

through Thy will. Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most

Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most

Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which

have clung all in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by the light of Thy countenance which impelled

them who are nigh unto Thee to meet the darts of Thy decree, and such as

are devoted to Thee to face the swords of Thine enemies in Thy path, to

write down for me with Thy most exalted Pen what Thou hast written down

for Thy trusted ones and Thy chosen ones. Thou seest me, O my God, holding

to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the Most Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most

Great, the Most Exalted, the Most Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the

robe to which have clung all in this world and in the world to come.



I beseech Thee, O my God, by Thy Name through which Thou hast hearkened

unto the call of Thy lovers, and the sighs of them that long for Thee, and

the cry of them that enjoy near access to Thee, and the groaning of them

that are devoted to Thee, and through which Thou hast fulfilled the wishes

of them that have set their hopes on Thee, and hast granted them their

desires, through Thy grace and Thy favors, and by Thy Name through which

the ocean of forgiveness surged before Thy face, and the clouds of Thy

generosity rained upon Thy servants, to write down for every one who hath

turned unto Thee, and observed the fast prescribed by Thee, the recompense

decreed for such as speak not except by Thy leave, and who forsook all

that they possessed in Thy path and for love of Thee.



I beseech Thee, O my Lord, by Thyself, and by Thy signs, and Thy clear

tokens, and the shining light of the Day-Star of Thy Beauty, and Thy

Branches, to cancel the trespasses of those who have held fast to Thy

laws, and have observed what Thou hast prescribed unto them in Thy Book.

Thou seest me, O my God, holding to Thy Name, the Most Holy, the Most

Luminous, the Most Mighty, the Most Great, the Most Exalted, the Most

Glorious, and clinging to the hem of the robe to which have clung all in

this world and in the world to come.





I Bear Witness, O My God, That Thou Hast Created I Beseech Thee, O My Lord, By That Remembrance facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
