Hafiz - I bow to God

I bow to God in gratitude
And I find the moon is also busy
Doing the same.

I bow to God in great happiness
And I learn from where the sun’s
And the children
And my heart
All borrow their light.

I bow to the Friend in deep reverence
And discover a marvelous secret carried in the air:

This whole Universe is just as blessed
And divinely crazed as I,
And just as lost in this Wonderful Holy Dance.

My dear,
After such a long, long journey,
God has made another soul

Now all Hafiz wants to do
Is open a beautiful tavern
Where this sacred wine
Of God’s Truth, Knowledge and Love
Is forever and ever
Freely offered to you.

O bow to God in gratitude,
And someday
You will see how
The moon is also busy doing the same.
