Glory Be To Thee, O My God! Thou Hearest Thine

Sources: Prayers And Meditations

Glory be to Thee, O my God! Thou hearest Thine ardent lovers lamenting in

their separation from Thee, and such as have recognized Thee wailing

because of their remoteness from Thy presence. Open Thou outwardly to

their faces, O my Lord, the gates of Thy grace, that they may enter them

by Thy leave and in conformity with Thy will, and may stand before the

throne of Thy majesty, and catch the accents of Thy voice, and be

illumined with the splendors of the light of Thy face.

Potent art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee. None can withstand the power of

Thy sovereign might. From everlasting Thou wert alone, with none to equal

Thee, and wilt unto everlasting remain far above all thought and every

description of Thee. Have mercy, then, upon Thy servants by Thy grace and

bounty, and suffer them not to be kept back from the shores of the ocean

of Thy nearness. If Thou abandonest them, who is there to befriend them;

and if Thou puttest them far from Thee, who is he that can favor them?

They have none other Lord beside Thee, none to adore except Thyself. Deal

Thou generously with them by Thy bountiful grace.

Thou, in truth, art the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Compassionate.
