Elaika

here are my highest request for you, the lord of creation
even if i was a criminal, you are the generous
and when my heart became constricted and my path became narrowed
i took my hope in your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape
you are and still remain the only one who can forgive sins
you grant and forgive out of your benevolence and generosity

here are my highest request for you, the lord of creation
even if i was a criminal, you are the generous
and when my heart became constricted and my path became narrowed
i took my hope in your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape
you are and still remain the only one who can forgive sins
you grant and forgive out of your benevolence and generosity

are you not the one who has provided for me and guided me
and you have not ceased being gracious to me and full of favors
perhaps the beneficent one will forgive my mistakes
and cover up my sins and what has gone forth
so if you forgive me, you would have forgiven a sinner
a rebellious person, still sinning
so if you were to seek revenge from me, then i would not despair
even if they entered my soul into the fire of hell due to the sins

here are my highest request for you, the lord of creation
even if i was a criminal, you are the generous
and when my heart became constricted and my path became narrowed
i took my hope in your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape
you are and still remain the only one who can forgive sins
you grant and forgive out of your benevolence and generosity

eloquent when he makes mention of his lord
and in the mention of other than him, he is speechless
he says, m beloved, you are what I request and desire
you are enough of a longing and benefit for those who have hope
I protect my love lest, my desires should pollute it

and I preserve the contract of love, lest it be defiled
in my wakefulness is yearning and in my slumber is destiny
That’s pursuing my footsteps in ecstasy
for my crimes are great, pas and present
but your forgiveness comes to the servant, more exalted and more great

here are my highest request for you, the lord of creation
even if i was a criminal, you are the generous
and when my heart became constricted and my path became narrowed
i took my hope in your pardon and forgiveness as an opening and an escape
you are and still remain the only one who can forgive sins
you grant and forgive out of your benevolence and generosity
