Lauded Be Thy Name, O Thou In Whose Hands Is

Lauded be Thy name, O Thou in Whose hands is the kingdom of all names, and

in the grasp of Whose might are all that are in heaven and all that are on

earth! I entreat Thee, by Him Who is Thy Most Effulgent Name Whom Thou

hast made a target for the darts of Thy decree in Thy path, O Thou the

King of eternity, to rend asunder the veils that have shut off Thy

creatures from the horizon of Thy glory, that haply they may turn their

faces in the direction of Thy mercy, and draw nigh unto the Day-Spring of

Thy loving-kindness.

Leave not Thy servants to themselves, O my Lord! Draw them through the

influence of Thine utterances unto the Dawning-Place of Thine inspiration,

and to the Fountain of Thy Revelation, and to the Treasury of Thy wisdom.

Thou art He to Whose strength and power all things have testified, Whose

Purpose nothing whatsoever of all that hath been created in Thy heaven and

on Thy earth hath been able to frustrate.

Render, then, victorious, O my God, Thy servants who have set their faces

towards Thee, and directed their steps to the seat of Thy grace. Send

down, then, upon them what will keep them safe from the danger of turning

to any one but Thee, and from fixing their eyes upon aught else except


Potent art Thou to do what Thou willest, and to rule as Thou pleasest.

There is no God but Thee, the God of glory and wisdom.

Lauded Be Thy Name, O My God! Thou Seest How Lauded Be Thy Name, O Thou Who Art My God facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
