Lauded be Thy Name, O Lord my God! I am
Thy servant who hath laid hold on the cord
of Thy tender mercies, and clung to the hem of
thy bounteousness. I entreat Thee by Thy name
whereby Thou hast subjected all created things,
both visible and invisible, and through which the
breath that is life indeed was wafted over the entire
creation, to strengthen me by Thy power which
hath encompassed the heavens and the earth, and
to guard me from all sickness and tribulation. I
bear witness that Thou art the Lord of all names,
and the Ordainer of all that my please Thee.
There is none other God but Thee, the Almighty,
the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.
Do Thou ordain for me, O my Lord, what will
profit me in every world of Thy worlds. Supply
me, then, with what Thou hast written down for
the chosen ones among Thy creatures, whom
neither the blame of the blamer, nor the clamor of
the infidel, nor the estrangement of such as have
withdrawn from Thee, hath deterred from turning
Thou, truly, art the Help in Peril through the
power of Thy sovereignty. No God is there save
Thee, the Almighty, the Most Powerful.
