The Sun is my Empress, She shines over everything
I was tempted to put the full text here. However, I remembered that Chrome’s translation software would chew it up. I hope the two images render without any issues. If there are any, let me know. The raw text is available, so please contact me if you would like to have it.

Go out in the morning, into the tabernacles and the courts. Blessed are the souls that receive you; they will be comforted. Do not faint from toil; find rest in mine house. Sleep, and see a mystery in the early moments, before the trumpets will sound. Continue to the city, touching all who praise thee for thy works. Blessed are the faithful that rejoice in thy labour; they will obtain gladness even until the latter rain.
I will not age nor show how frail I am, nor let the flower of my glory fall away. Yea, I will bless them that sow in joy and wait to taste the bounteous supper. Mine riches shall I heap upon their heads.
Therefore, feel not disquiet, but hope. Walk in righteousness, and be worthy. Weep not for days, but return to me. And measure not my devotion in a handsbreadth; surely, it will endure forever.
