lyrics

O holy Lord! O Lord of loving-kindness!
We stray about Thy dwelling, longing to behold Thy beauty,
and loving all Thy ways…

We come with no provision but our sins,
with no good deeds to tell of, only hopes.

Unless Thy concealing veil doth cover us,
and Thy protection shield and cradle us,
what power have these helpless souls to rise and serve Thee,
what substance have these wretched ones to make a brave display?…

Whatever we are, still are we Thine,
and what we speak and hear is praise of Thee,
and it is Thy face we seek, Thy path we follow.
Thou art the Lord of loving-kindness,
we are sinners and astray and far from home…

Withered as we are, revive us with showers from Thy clouds of grace;
lowly as we are, illumine us with bright rays
from the Day-Star of Thy oneness…

Wherefore, O Cloud of Mercy, grant us some drops of rain.
O Flowering Bed of grace, send forth a fragrant breeze.
O Sea of all bestowals, roll towards us a great wave.
O Sun of Bounty, send down a shaft of light.

From Selections from the Writings of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, No. 2
