The Glorious God
Found in the book
The Persian Mystics: Jami
(Available as FREE Ebook on the page linked above)
The glorious God, whose bounty, mercy, grace,
And loving-kindness all the world embrace,
At every moment brings a world to naught,
And fashions such another in its place.
All gifts soever unto God are due,
Yet special gifts from special “Names” ensue ;
At every breath one “Name” annihilates,
And one creates all outward things anew.
