Now comes everlasting beauty.
Now comes abundant grace,
Now comes boundless purity.
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!
The Light of Truth shines from Tabriz.
It is beyond the beyond
yet it is here,
shining through every particle of this world.
