Thou Seest O God Of Mercy Thou

Thou seest, O God of Mercy, Thou Whose power pervadeth all created things,

these servants of Thine, Thy thralls, who, according to the good-pleasure

of Thy Will, observe in the daytime the fast prescribed by Thee, who

arise, at the earliest dawn of day, to make mention of Thy Name, and to

celebrate Thy praise, in the hope of obtaining their share of the goodly

things that are treasured up within the treasuries of Thy grace and

bounty. I beseech Thee, O Thou that holdest in Thine hands the reins of

the entire creation, in Whose grasp is the whole kingdom of Thy names and

of Thine attributes, not to deprive, in Thy Day, Thy servants from the

showers pouring from the clouds of Thy mercy, nor to hinder them from

taking their portion of the ocean of Thy good-pleasure.

All the atoms of the earth bear witness, O my Lord, to the greatness of

Thy power and of Thy sovereignty; and all the signs of the universe attest

the glory of Thy majesty and of Thy might. Have mercy, then, O Thou Who

art the sovereign Lord of all, Who art the King of everlasting days, and

Ruler of all nations, upon these Thy servants, who have clung to the cord

of Thy commandments, who have bowed their necks to the revelations of Thy

laws which have been sent down from the heaven of Thy Will.

Behold, O my Lord, how their eyes are lifted up towards the dawning-place

of Thy loving-kindness, how their hearts are set upon the oceans of Thy

favors, how their voices are lowered before the accents of Thy most sweet

Voice, calling, from the most sublime Station, in Thy name the

All-Glorious. Help Thou Thy loved ones, O my Lord, them that have forsaken

their all, that they may obtain the things Thou dost possess, whom trials

and tribulations have encompassed for having renounced the world and set

their affections on Thy realm of glory. Shield them, I entreat Thee, O my

Lord, from the assaults of their evil passions and desires, and aid them

to obtain the things that shall profit them in this present world and in

the next.

I pray Thee, O my Lord, by Thy hidden, Thy treasured Name, that calleth

aloud in the kingdom of creation, and summoneth all peoples to the Tree

beyond which there is no passing, the seat of transcendent glory, to rain

down upon us, and upon Thy servants, the overflowing rain of Thy mercy,

that it may cleanse us from the remembrance of all else but Thee, and draw

us nigh unto the shores of the ocean of Thy grace. Ordain, O Lord, through

Thy most exalted Pen, that which will immortalize our souls in the Realm

of glory, will perpetuate our names in Thy Kingdom, and safeguard our

lives in the treasuries of Thy protection and our bodies in the stronghold

of Thy inviolable fastness. Powerful art Thou over all things, be they of

the past or of the future. No God is there but Thee, the omnipotent

Protector, the Self-Subsisting.

Thou seest, O Lord, our suppliant hands lifted up towards the heaven of

Thy favor and bounty. Grant that they may be filled with the treasures of

Thy munificence and bountiful favor. Forgive us, and our fathers, and our

mothers, and fulfil whatsoever we have desired from the ocean of Thy grace

and Divine generosity. Accept, O Beloved of our hearts, all our works in

Thy path. Thou art, verily, the Most Powerful, the Most Exalted, the

Incomparable, the One, the Forgiving, the Gracious.
