The Compassionate, The Merciful
I believe in God the merciful, the compassionate,
the ninety-nine named, the elaborate,
the farsighted, the inner whisperer.
Computers, at His knowledge, despair,
wires and circuits can never compare
with Him who spread the stars
across the night and the mountains far.
God, the creator, the magnificent,
whose secrets are glimpsed by the mathematically diligent,
knows his earth garden well,
His plans for it extends and excels.
When, in the next world, we perceive it,
we shall wonder at how love and justice are interknit
like a bracelet of gold and pearl,
interwoven around the world.
