y God, Whom I worship and adore! I bear witness unto Thy
unity and Thy oneness, and acknowledge Thy gifts, both in
the past and in the present. Thou art the All-Bountiful,
the overflowing showers of Whose mercy have rained down upon
high and low alike, and the splendors of Whose grace have
been shed over both the obedient and the rebellious.
O God of mercy, before Whose
door the quintessence of mercy hath bowed down, and round
the sanctuary of Whose Cause loving-kindness, in its inmost
spirit, hath circled, we beseech Thee, entreating Thine
ancient grace, and seeking Thy present favor, that Thou
mayest have mercy upon all who are the manifestations of the
world of being, and deny them not the outpourings of Thy
grace in Thy days.
All are but poor and needy,
and Thou, verily, art the All-Possessing, the All-Subduing,
