Praise Be Unto Thee, O My God! Thou Art He

Praise be unto Thee, O my God! Thou art He Who by a word of His mouth hath

revolutionized the entire creation, and by a stroke of His pen hath

divided Thy servants one from another. I bear witness, O my God, that

through a word spoken by Thee in this Revelation all created things were

made to expire, and through yet another word all such as Thou didst wish

were, by Thy grace and bounty, endued with new life.

I render Thee thanks, therefore, and extol Thee, in the name of all them

that are dear to Thee, for that Thou hast caused them to be born again, by

reason of the living waters which have flowed down out of the mouth of Thy

will. Since Thou didst quicken them by Thy bounteousness, O my God, make

them steadfastly inclined, through Thy graciousness, towards Thy will; and

since Thou didst suffer them to enter into the Tabernacle of Thy Cause,

grant by Thy grace that they may not be kept back from Thee.

Unlock, then, to their hearts, O my God, the portals of Thy knowledge,

that they may recognize Thee as One Who is far above the reach and ken of

the understanding of Thy creatures, and immeasurably exalted above the

strivings of Thy people to hint at Thy nature, and may not follow every

clamorous impostor that presumeth to speak in Thy name. Enable them,

moreover, O my Lord, to cleave so tenaciously to Thy Cause that they may

remain unmoved by the perplexing suggestions of them who, prompted by

their desires, utter what hath been forbidden unto them in Thy Tablets and

Thy Scriptures.

Thou art well aware, O my Lord, that I hear the howling of the wolves

which appear in Thy servants' clothing. Keep safe, therefore, Thy loved

ones from their mischief, and enable them to cling steadfastly to

whatsoever hath been manifested by Thee in this Revelation, which no other

Revelation within Thy knowledge hath excelled.

Do Thou destine for them, O my Lord, that which will profit them.

Illumine, then, their eyes with the light of Thy knowledge, that they may

see Thee visibly supreme over all things, and resplendent amidst Thy

creatures, and victorious over all that are in Thy heaven and all that are

on Thy earth. Powerful art Thou to do Thy pleasure. No God is there but

Thee, the All-Glorious, Whose help is implored by all men.

Praised be Thou, Who art the Lord of all creation.

Praise Be To Thee, To Whom The Tongues Of All Praise Be Unto Thee, O My God! Thou Seest How facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
