Glory be unto Thee, O Lord of the world and
Desire of the nations, O Thou Who hast
become manifest in the Greatest Name, whereby
the pearls of wisdom and utterance have appeared
from the shells of the great sea of Thy knowledge,
and the heavens of divine revelation have been
adorned with the light of the appearance of the sun
of Thy countenance.
I beg of Thee, by that Word through which
Thy proof was perfected among Thy creatures and
Thy testimony was fulfilled amidst Thy servants,
to strengthen Thy people in that whereby the face
of the Cause will radiate in Thy dominion, the
standards of Thy power will be planted among
Thy servants, and the banners of Thy guidance
will be raised throughout Thy dominions.
O my God! Thou beholdest them clinging to
the rope of Thy grace and holding fast unto the
hem of the mantle of Thy beneficence. Ordain for
them that which may draw them nearer unto
Thee, and withhold them from all else save Thee.
I beg of Thee, O Thou King of existence and
Protector of the seen and the unseen, to make
whosoever arises to serve Thy Cause as a sea
moving by Thy desire, as one ablaze with the fire
of Thy Sacred Tree, shining from the horizon of
the heaven of Thy will. Verily, Thou art the
mighty One, Whom neither the power of all the
world nor the strength of nations can weaken.
There is no God but Thee, the One, the Incomparable,
the Protector, the Self-Subsistent.
