Supplication of a Saint

by Abul Hasan al-Shadhili (may God be pleased with him)

O All-powerful, O Compassionate, O Wise, O Free of Need, O Bountiful, O Capacious, O All-knowing, O Immense of Generosity:

Make me always with You, subsisting through You,
safe from other than You, rapt in love of You,
and knowing the greatness of You.
And cast aside the between from between me and You, until nothing is closer to me than You,
and veil me not by You from You: Truly, You have power over all things.
