Now comes everlasting beauty.
Now comes abundant grace,
Now comes boundless purity.
The infinite treasure is shining,
The mighty ocean is roaring,
The morning of grace has come —
Morning? — No!
This is the eternal Light of God!
Who occupies this beautiful form?
Who is the ruler and the prince?
Who is this wise ? —
Nothing but a veil.
The wine of love removes these veils.
Drink with your head and your eyes —
Both your eyes,
and both your heads!
Your head of clay is from the earth,
Your pure awareness is from heaven.
O how vast is that treasure
which lies beneath the clay!
Every head you see depends on it!
Behind every atom of this world
hides an infinite universe.
O Saaqi, free us from the facade of this world.
Bring wine — barrels full!
Our eyes see too straight —
straight past the truth!
The Light of Truth shines from Tabriz.
It is beyond the beyond
yet it is here,
shining through every particle of this world.
