“O thou blooming rose in the garden of the Love of…”

O thou blooming rose in the garden of the Love of God!
Verily, the heavenly angels address thee from the Supreme Horizon, saying: “O maid-servant of God! Be rejoiced for God hath chosen thee for His love and sheltered thee under the shade of His Kingdom, the lights of which shone forth, the signs of which were manifested, the mysteries of which were unfolded, the fragrance of which emanated, the waves of which surged, the causes of which were promulgated, the suns of which appeared, the moons of which shone and the stars of which sparkled.”
Therefore, praise God for that He honored thee with presence in this great century and new cycle and caused thee to attain this new bounty.
I ask God to send down upon thee a blessing and upon thy family a favor from His Kingdom.
