Ya Quddus, how can I describe Your beauty?
Your truth exceeds that of the mind and eye.
It is to You that all living things fly.
You are Pure and Free of Deficiency.
You are Free From Any Impurity.
You are The Supreme, The Just, The Most High.
Your praises are sung in the land and sky.
You are The Perfect, The Pure, The Holy.
Whatever I say will be deficient
To do justice to Your Magnificence.
You are Infinite in Your Transcendence.
The worlds You created are resplendent.
Everywhere one turns is evidence
Of Your Mercy, Oh Most Benevolent.
