Know Myself

I thank you, Lord, for knowing me
better than I know myself,
and for letting me know myself
better than others know me.
Make me, I ask you then,
better than they suppose,
and forgive me for what they do not know.

attributed to Abu Bakr (573-634), father-in-law of the prophet Muhammad and first caliph.
