“O thou Glorious Lord!…”

O thou Glorious Lord! 1
Make thou this little maid-servant a brilliant-starred daughter of the Kingdom; endear her in the Threshold of Oneness and overflow her with the cup of Thy love, in order that she may raise the cries of joy and ecstasy and mix ambergris with musk. 2
Verily, Thou art the Powerful and the Mighty, and Thou art the Wise, the Seer!
