The Prayer of Sama

O Lord, we have no friend other than You,

we find no solace except in Your refuge.

You know the secrets of each and every Sufi; 

You alone can solve all their problems.

O Lord, grant us an intellect that seeks only You

and a tongue that speaks only Your name.

O Lord, grant us a heart that longs for nearness to You

and that contains no desire but the desire for You. 

O Lord, You know what we truly want!

Bestow whatever You wish, as You can do as You please.

Grant purity to hearts that are enraptured with You; 

bestow sustenance on the destitute of Your lane.

May You gladden all hearts with intoxication, 

so they find release from the bonds of self-existence.
