My One and Only, only You can make me

by Mansur al- Hallaj

English version by Ivan M. Granger
Original Language Arabic

My One and Only, only You can make me
     one with You,
For Your Oneness is neither reached by roads
     nor religion.

Truth! I am Truth wrapped in Truth --
For Truth Is, indivisible from itself.

Your Presence is the dawn, brilliant,
Lightning flashing forth in all directions!
