Sadi's Scroll of Wisdom, by Arthur N. Wollaston, [1906], at

p. 28 p. 29


In the Name of God, the Merciful and Compassionate!

O merciful Being! take pity on our condition;
For we are captives in the snare of lust!
We have no protector save Thee!
Thou art the all-sufficient Forgiver of sins to us sinners!
Keep us from the path of error;
Forgive us our trespasses, and show us righteousness.
