Live happily with never-ending union
With the one you love, with the veils of distance raised
Witness the utter beauty of the one for whose sake
The hearts of the lovers split asunder from its light
Be of good cheer for attaining what you hoped for
Upon the brow of the Elect Prophet has the sun of the forenoon shined!
