  • شیخ بر می‌گشت زنبیلی به دست  ** شیء لله خواجه توفیقیت هست 
  • His inward experiences were higher than the Footstool and the Throne (of God); his (external) business was (to cry), “Something for God's sake, something for God's sake!”

  • در به در این شیخ می‌آرد نیاز  ** بر فلک صد در برای شیخ باز 
  • Because the beggary that he practised (so) diligently was for the sake of God, not for the sake of his gullet;
  • که آن گدایی که آن به جد می‌کرد او  ** بهر یزدان بود نه از بهر گلو 
  • And even if he had done it for the sake of his gullet, that gullet hath (is endowed with) exorbitance by the Light of God.
  • ور بکردی نیز از بهر گلو  ** آن گلو از نور حق دارد غلو
