O thou maid-servant of God who art attracted to the Fragrances of God!
Speak of my servitude unto God, of my humbleness and submissiveness to the Beloved of God, and of my evanescence, nothingness and utter meekness to the Threshold of Baha’. Verily, I am the servant of Baha’, the slave of Baha’ and the captive of Baha’. I have no grade but this and I do not possess anything 604 for myself. Therefore, mention me in my pure servitude; this is that by which my heart is dilated by every maid-servant who speaks the praise of God. I beseech God to make thee a dove in the grove of holiness, to coo with the most wonderful melodies the praise of thy Lord, the Merciful!
