Have no doubts because of trouble nor be thou discomfitedby Sa'di
English version by Edward B. Eastwick
Original Language Persian/Farsi
Have no doubts because of trouble nor be thou discomfited;
For the water of life's fountain springeth from a gloomy bed.
Ah! ye brothers of misfortune! be not ye with grief oppressed,
Many are the secret mercies which with the All-bounteous rest.
