“O ye who have advanced! O ye who are rejoiced!…”

O ye 1 who have advanced! O ye who are rejoiced!
Verily, God hath, through His grace and generosity, guided you toward His Kingdom, hath facilitated unto 82 you every good, hath favored you with the bounty of guidance, hath made you signs of piety, hath caused a blessing to descend upon you from heaven, and hath made you banners of His commemoration among mankind.
Thank ye God for this gift, by reason of which the hearts of the Supreme Concourse are exhilarated. The fragrances of holiness shall soon be diffused and the breeze of grace shall blow from the direction of the providence of your Lord, whereby your mentioning will be exalted, your light will become scintillating, your backs will be strengthened and you joy will be perfected.
Make you feet firm in the love of God, arise to carry on the teachings of God, purify souls from desire and illumine faces with the light of guidance; so that ye may obtain the might gift and the great mercy.
