He is the Gracious, the All-Bountiful!
O God, my God! Thy call hath attracted
me, and the voice of Thy Pen of Glory awakened
me. the stream of Thy holy utterance hath enraptured
me, and the wine of Thine inspiration entranced
me. Thou seest me, O Lord, detached from
all things but Thee, clinging to the cord of Thy
bounty and craving the wonders of Thy grace. I
ask Thee, by the eternal billows of Thy loving-kindness
and the shining lights of Thy tender care
and favor, to grant that which shall draw me nigh
unto thee and make me rich in Thy wealth. My
tongue, my pen, my whole being, testify to Thy
power, Thy might, Thy grace and Thy bounty,
that Thou art God and there is none other God but
Thee, the Powerful, the Mighty.
I bear witness at this moment, O my God, to
my helplessness and Thy sovereignty, my feebleness
and Thy power. I know not that which profiteth
me or harmeth me; Thou art, verily, the All-Knowing,
the All-Wise. Do Thou decree for me,
O Lord, my God, and my Master, that which will
make me feel content with Thine eternal decree
and will prosper me in every world of Thine.
Thou art in truth the Gracious, the Bountiful.
Lord! Turn me not away from the ocean of Thy
wealth and the heaven of Thy mercy, and ordain
for me the good of this world and hereafter. Verily,
Thou art the Lord of the mercy-seat, enthroned
in the highest; there is none other God but
Thee, the One, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
