Dispel my grief by Thy bounty and Thy generosity,
O God, my God, and banish mine
anguish through Thy sovereignty and Thy might.
Thou seest me, O my God, with my face set towards
Thee at a time when sorrows have compassed
me on every side. I implore Thee, O Thou
Who art the Lord of all being, and overshadowest
all things visible and invisible, by Thy Name
whereby Thou hast subdued the hearts and the
souls of men, and by the billows of the Ocean of
Thy mercy and the splendors of the Daystar of
Thy bounty, to number me with them whom
nothing whatsoever hath deterred from setting
their faces toward Thee, O Thou Lord of all
names and Maker of the heavens!
Thou beholdest, O my Lord, the things which
have befallen me in Thy days. I entreat Thee, by
Him Who is the Dayspring of Thy names and the
Dawning-Place of Thine attributes, to ordain for
me what will enable me to arise to serve Thee and
to extol Thy virtues. Thou art, verily, the Almighty,
the Most Powerful, Who art wont to answer
the prayers of all men!
And, finally, I beg of Thee by the light of Thy
countenance to bless my affairs, and redeem my
debts, and satisfy my needs. Thou art He to
Whose power and to Whose dominion every
tongue hath testified, and Whose majesty and
Whose sovereignty every understanding heart
hath acknowledged. No God is there but Thee,
Who hearest and art ready to answer.
