O God our Lord! Protect us through Thy
grace from whatsoever my be repugnant
unto Thee, and vouchsafe unto us that which
well beseemeth Thee. Give us more out of Thy
bounty, and bless us. Pardon us for the things we
have done, and wash away our sins, and forgive us
with Thy gracious forgiveness. Verily, Thou art
the Most Exalted, the Self-Subsisting.
Thy loving providence hath encompassed all
created things in the heavens and on the earth,
and Thy forgiveness hath surpassed the whole
creation. Thine is sovereignty; in Thy hand are the
Kingdoms of Creation and Revelation; in Thy
right hand Thou holdest all created things, and
within Thy grasp are the assigned measures of forgiveness.
Thou forgivest whomsoever among
Thy servants Thou pleasest. Verily, Thou art the
Ever-Forgiving, the All-Loving. Nothing whatsoever
escapeth Thy knowledge, and naught is
there which is hidden from Thee.
O God our Lord! Protect us through the potency
of Thy might, enable us to enter Thy wondrous
surging ocean, and grant us that which well
Thou art the Sovereign Ruler, the Mighty
Doer, the Exalted, the All-Loving.
