O Thou Whose Nearness Is My Wish, Whose Presence

O Thou Whose nearness is my wish, Whose presence is my hope, Whose

remembrance is my desire, Whose court of glory is my goal, Whose abode is

my aim, Whose name is my healing, Whose love is the radiance of my heart,

Whose service is my highest aspiration! I beseech Thee by Thy Name,

through which Thou hast enabled them that have recognized Thee to soar to

the sublimest heights of the knowledge of Thee and empowered such as

devoutly worship Thee to ascend into the precincts of the court of Thy

holy favors, to aid me to turn my face towards Thy face, to fix mine eyes

upon Thee, and to speak of Thy glory.

I am the one, O my Lord, who hath forgotten all else but Thee, and turned

towards the Day-Spring of Thy grace, who hath forsaken all save Thyself in

the hope of drawing nigh unto Thy court. Behold me, then, with mine eyes

lifted up towards the Seat that shineth with the splendors of the light of

Thy Face. Send down, then, upon me, O my Beloved, that which will enable

me to be steadfast in Thy Cause, so that the doubts of the infidels may

not hinder me from turning towards Thee.

Thou art, verily, the God of Power, the Help in Peril, the All-Glorious,

the Almighty.
