An Arabic Prayer

>  All our worship is to be done absolutely selflessly, out of love,
  This reminds me of what is supposed to be an "Arabic Prayer" once someone
  gave me which I would like to share with you all:

  If I worship Thee out of fear of hell, burn me there..
  If I worship Thee out of desire for heaven, do not let me there...
  If I worship Thee out of love for You, please conceal not 
   Thy eternal beauty from me...
