The gnostics’ hearts with eyes are blest

The gnostics’ hearts with eyes are blest

The gnostic’ hearts with eyes are blest The gnostic’ hearts with eyes are blest That see what other see’ers see not; And tongues whose discourse is of secrets Beyond the recording angels’ ken, And wings that all unfeathered fly To His dominion, Lord of the Worlds. We have inherited the draught, Sciences of hidden secret, Rarer than all lore of old. Their samples speak for them as signs And nullify impostors’ claims. by Sahl al- Tustari English version by Martin Lings Original Language Persian/Farsi »
