I Swear

I swear by the truly Gracious One,
By His bounty and endless wisdom;
That, one day, justice will be done.
I swear by the unfathomable love of the Friend,
By His purity, which has no cease, no end;
Evil and wickedness will undoubtedly end.
I swear by His light, which, since eternity, shone,
And by the grandeur of His magnificent throne;
Everyone, for his deeds, must eventually own.
I swear by the holiness of His Face,
And by His ability to create;
There does not exist caste, division, or race.
I swear by the Giver of glorious gifts,
And by His judgment, fair, sound, and swift;
That His righteous slaves, to Heaven, will lift.
I swear by the One who sent down the decree,
And by the One who will, forever, be;
That everyone shall someday come to see…
