We have fallen to our knees

          in Your district — come to us!

We have abandoned the valley

          of the ego — come!

For a lifetime we have been devotees

          in Your sanctuary;

O companion of those liberated

          from self — come!

On the path to union with You

          we have relinquished all;

O existence of all that is — come!

We have thrown away our existence

          on the path of Your love;

You who are without concern

          and difficult to befriend — come!

Through yearning for You, we are unconscious

          of ourselves.

Of this You are aware, for You created

          this unrest — come!

Desiring to see You,

          we left our selves.

It is now time

          to uncover Your face — come!

Nurbakhsh lost himself

          to find You.

Enough of Your disdain,

          with kindness come to us.
