He is the Mighty, the Pardoner, the Compassionate!
O God, my God! Thou beholdest Thy servants
in the abyss of perdition and error; where is
Thy light of divine guidance, O Thou the Desire
of the world? Thou knowest their helplessness
and their feebleness; where is Thy power, O Thou
in Whose grasp lie the powers of heaven and earth?
I ask Thee, O Lord my God, by the splendor of
the lights of Thy loving-kindness and the billows
of the ocean of Thy knowledge and wisdom and
by Thy Word wherewith Thou hast swayed the
peoples of Thy dominion, to grant that I may be
one of them that have observed Thy bidding in
Thy Book. And do Thou ordain for me that which
Thou hast ordained for Thy trusted ones, them
that have quaffed the wine of divine inspiration
from the chalice of Thy bounty and hastened to
do Thy pleasure and observe Thy Covenant and
Testament. Powerful art Thou to do as Thou willest.
There is none other God but Thee, the All-Knowing,
Decree for me, by Thy bounty, O Lord, that
which shall prosper me in this world and hereafter
and shall draw me nigh unto Thee, O Thou
Who art the Lord of all men. There is none other
God but Thee, the One, the Mighty, the Glorified.
