The ocean of his generosity has no shore

by Sarmad

English version by Isaac A. Ezekiel
Original Language Persian/Farsi

The ocean of his generosity has no shore.
The tongue is powerless to thank,
the heart too bewildered to understand.
Though my sins are many
his compassion is greater still--
I swim in the sea of disobedience
but I do not drown.

-- from Sarmad: Martyr to Love Divine, by Isaac A. Ezekiel
