Glorified art Thou, O Lord my God! Every
time I venture to make mention of Thee, I
am held back by my mighty sins and grievous
trepasses against Thee, and find myself wholly
deprived of Thy grace, and utterly powerless to
celebrate Thy praise. My great confidence in Thy
bounty, however, reviveth my hope in Thee, and
my certitude that Thou wilt bountifully deal with
me emboldeneth me to extol Thee, and to ask of
Thee the things Thou dost possess.
I implore Thee, O my God, by Thy mercy that
hath surpassed all created things, and to which all
that are immersed beneath the oceans of Thy
names bear witness, not to abandon me unto my
self, for my heart is prone to evil. Guard me, then,
within the stronghold of Thy protection and the
shelter of Thy care. I am he, O my God, whose
only wish is what Thou hast determined by the
power of Thy might. All I have chosen for myself
is to be assisted by Thy gracious appointments
and the ruling of Thy will, and to be aided with the
tokens of Thy decree and judgment.
I beseech Thee, O Thou Who art the Beloved
of the hearts which long for Thee, by the Manifestations
of Thy Cause and the Daysprings of
Thine inspiration, and the Exponents of Thy
majesty, and the Treasuries of Thy knowledge,
not to suffer me to be deprived of Thy holy Habitation,
Thy Fane and Thy Tabernacle. Aid me, O
my Lord, to attain His hallowed court, and to circle
round His person, and to stand humbly at His
Thou art He Whose power is from everlasting
to everlasting. Nothing escapeth Thy knowledge.
Thou art, verily, the God of power, the God of
glory and wisdom.
Praised be God, the Lord of the worlds!
