Like unto the man born blind, deprived of light, I am devoid of the sense of sight, Whereby to look at thy face, O creator, And pray, O mighty most merciful one, [37] [38] The Anthology of Armenian Poets Volume I That thou who the sole protector, Mayest turn the solicitous glance Of thine ineffable love towards me, Who am thy breathing and talking vessel.
