O my Lord, my Beloved, my Desire! Befriend
me in my loneliness and accompany me
in my exile. Remove my sorrow. Cause me to be
devoted to Thy beauty. Withdraw me from all
else save Thee. Attract me through Thy fragrances
of holiness. Cause me to be associated in
Thy Kingdom with those who are severed from
all else save Thee, who long to serve Thy sacred
threshold and who stand to work in Thy Cause.
Enable me to be one of Thy maidservants who
have attained to Thy good pleasure. Verily,
Thou art the Gracious, the Generous.
