;

1 . By the Glorious Morning Light,

2 . And by the Night when it is still,-

3 . Thy Guardian-Lord hath not forsaken thee, nor is He displeased.

4 . And verily the Hereafter will be better for thee than the present.

5 . And soon will thy Guardian-Lord give thee (that wherewith) thou shalt be well-pleased.

6 . Did He not find thee an orphan and give thee shelter (and care)?

7 . And He found thee wandering, and He gave thee guidance.

8 . And He found thee in need, and made thee independent.

9 . Therefore, treat not the orphan with harshness,

10 . Nor repulse the petitioner (unheard);

11 . But the bounty of the Lord - rehearse and proclaim!
