We have dashed into Truth in its mansion,
Viewing all beings in adoration,
The visions and spectacles of both worlds—
We have found these in all of Creation.

These skies which revolve in endless races
And all these subterranean places
And the seventy thousand disgraces—
We have found these in all of Creation.

The seven layers of earth and the skies,
All the hills and mountains and the seas,
The Hell of damnation and Paradise—
We have found these in all of Creation.

The darkest nights and the glittering days,
The seven stars of heaven with bright rays,
The tablet where the Word forever stays—
We have found these in all of Creation.

Mount Sinai where Moses ascended high,
The sacred mansion built up in the sky,
The trumpet which sounded Israfel’s cry—
We have found these in all of Creation.

The Old Testament, the New Testament,
The Koran and the Psalms, all their intent,
And the truth imbedded in their content—
We have found these in all of Creation.

Translated by Talât Sait Halman
