Abu Saeed : At the end of my rope

For more about Shaikh Abu Saeed Abil Khair, see this earlier post.

I have taken refuge in Your glorious court,
a fallen beggar in tatters.
You are all glory and grace,
I am all ignorance and resentment.
Confused and bewitched, I am
fed up with myself.
With vows made and vows broken I have come.
Trusting Your Love and my wretchedness,
I have come.
O Knower of my sins made, and yet to be made,
forsake me not.
I am nothing, you are the All.
I am at the end of my rope.
Grant me the trust to let myself fall.
