Lauded Be Thy Name, O My God! I Am So Carried

Lauded be Thy name, O my God! I am so carried away by the breezes blowing

from Thy presence that I have forgotten my self and all that I possess.

This is but a sign of the wonders of Thy grace and bountiful favors

vouchsafed unto me. I give praise to Thee, O my God, that Thou hast chosen

me out of all Thy creatures, and made me to be the Day-Spring of Thy

strength and the Manifestation of Thy might, and empowered me to reveal

such of Thy signs and such tokens of Thy majesty and power as none,

whether in Thy heaven or on Thy earth, can produce.

I beseech Thee, O my Lord, by Thy most effulgent Name, to acquaint my

people with the things Thou didst destine for them. Do Thou, then,

preserve them within the stronghold of Thy guardianship and the tabernacle

of Thine unerring protection, lest through them may appear what will

divide Thy servants. Assemble them, O my Lord, on the shores of this

Ocean, every drop of which proclaimeth Thee to be God, besides Whom there

is none other God, the All-Glorious, the All-Wise.

Uncover before them, O my Lord, the majesty of Thy Cause, lest they be led

to doubt Thy sovereignty and the power of Thy might. I swear by Thy glory,

O Thou Who art the Beloved of the worlds! Had they been aware of Thy power

they would of a certainty have refused to utter what Thou didst not ordain

for them in the heaven of Thy will.

Inspire them, O my Lord, with a sense of their own powerlessness before

Him Who is the Manifestation of Thy Self, and teach them to recognize the

poverty of their own nature in the face of the manifold tokens of Thy

self-sufficiency and riches, that they may gather together round Thy

Cause, and cling to the hem of Thy mercy, and cleave to the cord of the

good-pleasure of Thy will.

Thou art the Lord of the worlds, and of all those who show mercy, art the

Most Merciful.
