Praised Be Thou, O My God! This Servant Of Thine

Praised be Thou, O my God! This servant of Thine testifieth that naught

else except Thee can ever express Thee, nor canst Thou be described by any

one save Thyself. The thoughts of them that have recognized Thy reality,

however much they may ascend towards the heaven of Thy praise, can never

hope to pass beyond the bounds which, by Thy behest and decree, have been

fixed within their own hearts. How can the creature who is as nothing

comprehend Him Who is the Ancient of Days, or succeed in describing the

full measure of His sovereignty, His glory, and His grandeur? Nay, and to

this Thou Thyself dost witness, O Thou Who art the Governor of nations!

Every created thing hath recognized its own impotence, and the power of

Thy might, and hath confessed its own abasement and Thy great glory.

I beseech Thee by Thy Lastness which is the same as Thy Firstness, and by

Thy Revelation which is identical with Thy Concealment, to grant that they

who are dear to Thee, and their children, and their kindred, may become

the revealers of Thy purity amidst Thy creatures, and the manifestations

of Thy sanctity amongst Thy servants.

Thou art, verily, powerful to do Thy pleasure. Thou art, in truth, the

Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

Praised Be Thou, O My God! I Beseech Thee By Praised Be Thou, O My God! Thou Beholdest Both facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
