C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
To God the Compassionate
By Jalāl-ad-dīn Rūmī (1207–1273)
 
From the ‘Masnavī’: Translation of C. E. Wilson

TEACH me subtle words which you may regard with indulgence, O Compassionate One.
Both prayer comes from You
And answer to prayer from You;
A feeling of security comes from You,
And dread also comes from You.        5
If I have said that which is erroneous, do You correct it: You,
O Ruler of speech, are the Corrector.
