O God, my God! This Thy handmaid is calling
upon Thee, trusting in Thee, turning
her face unto Thee, imploring Thee to shed Thy
heavenly bounties upon her, and to disclose unto
her Thy spiritual mysteries, and to cast upon her
the lights of Thy Godhead.
O my Lord! Make the eyes of my husband to
see. Rejoice Thou his heart with the light of the
knowledge of Thee, draw Thou his mind unto
Thy luminous beauty, cheer Thou his spirit by
revealing unto him Thy manifest splendors.
O my Lord! Lift Thou the veil from before his
sight. Rain down Thy plenteous bounties upon
him, intoxicate him with the wine of love for
Thee, make him one of Thy angels whose feet
walk upon this earth even as their souls are soaring
through the high heavens. Cause him to become
a brilliant lamp, shining out with the light of
Thy wisdom in the midst of Thy people.
Verily, Thou art the Precious, the Ever-Bestowing,
the Open of Hand.
