Light of Truth

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.
