[Sunlight] Where there is pain, the remedy follows



Lovingkindness is drawn to the saint, as medicine goes
to the pain it must cure.
Where there is pain, the remedy follows:
wherever the lowlands are, the water goes.
If you want the water of mercy, make yourself low;
then drink the wine of mercy and be drunk.
Mercy upon mercy rises to your head like a flood.
Don't settle on a single mercy, O son.
Bring the sky beneath your feet
and listen to celestial music everywhere.

Mehrbâni shod shekâr-e shirmard
dar jahân dâru na-juyad ghayr-e dard
Har kojâ dardi davâ ânjâ ravad
har kojâ pastist âb ânjâ davad
b-e rahmat bâyadet raw past shaw
v-ângahân khvor khamr-e rahmat mast shaw
Rahmat andar rahmat âmad tâ be-sar
bar yeki rahmat foru ma-â ay pesar
Charkh-râ dar zir-e pâ ay shojâ`
Be-shenaw az fawq-e falak bâng-e samâ`
