[Sunlight] Don't hide from us the errors of our wrong pursuits



God, You who know all that is hidden,
You who speak with compassion,
don't hide from us the errors of our wrong pursuits
nor reveal to us the lack within the good we try to do,
lest we become disgusted and lose the heart
to journey on this Path.


Ay Khodâ-ye râz-dân khvosh sokhan
`ayb-e kâr-e bad ze mâ panhân ma-kon
`Ayb-e kâr-e nik-râ ma-namâ be-mâ
tâ na-gardim az ravesh sard o habâ

-- Mathnawi IV: 1353-1354
