Tell the beloved friend-Lord the condition of his yearning disciples Without You, the beautiful clothes which we wear are like diseases pressing upon us. Our comfortable homes are like dens of snakes. Our water pots are like spikes, our cups are like daggers. We are like beasts being led to the slaughter. O Dear Friend, in your presence even a straw mat is comfortable. Without you we are burnt alive in our villages.
