O thou son of the Kingdom!
Consider the bounty of the Lord and the gifts of thy Creator. He hath chosen thee to love Him and selected thee from among His beings to know Him and distinguished thee particularly with the gift of dazzling light through which the faces of the righteous will shine.

Then the tongues shall utter: “This is naught but a great bounty!”
