What follows is my provisional translation (in other words, not official or authorized; see here for more) of a prayer of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, the original text of which has been published in Ḥaḍrat-i-‘Abdu’l-Bahá: Majmú‘iy-i-Munáját-há (Bahá’í-Verlag, 2011, 4th ed.), pp. 91–92 (selection no. 129).
He is God
O Thou Provider, O Thou Forgiver! Sinners though we be, treading the path of rebellion, yet we knock at the door of Thy pardon and seek Thy good-pleasure. We commune with Thee and implore Thy forgiveness; we beseech Thine endless bestowals and entreat Thine absolution. Look not upon our shortcomings; behold not our weakness and deficiency. Confer Thou in a manner befitting Thy divinity; give freely in accordance with Thy celestial greatness. Teach us the way of repentance. Forgive our transgressions and shower us with blessings. Conceal our sins and overlook our trespasses; be Thou kind.
O God! Sin leadeth to ruin. Make us vigilant; grant us heedfulness.
O divine Providence! Forlorn are we and too weak to draw breath—we are but impotent rubbish—yet Thou art He Who cometh to our aid . . .
