Praised be Thou, O Lord my God! Graciously
grant that this infant be fed from the breast
of Thy tender mercy and loving providence and
be nourished with the fruit of Thy celestial trees.
Suffer him not to be committed to the care of
anyone save Thee, inasmuch as Thou, Thyself,
through the potency of Thy sovereign will and
power, didst create and call him into being. There
is none other God but Thee, the Almighty, the
Lauded art Thou, O my Best Beloved, waft
over him the sweet savors of Thy transcendent
bounty and the fragrances of Thy holy bestowals.
Enable him then to seek shelter beneath the
shadow of Thy most exalted Name, O Thou
Who holdest in Thy grasp the kingdom of names
and attributes. Verily, Thou art potent to do what
Thou willest, and Thou art indeed the Mighty, the
Exalted, the Ever-Forgiving, the Gracious, the
Generous, the Merciful.
