In the prayer book Tefillah Yeshara, in the section for the blessing on seeing the new moon (kiddush levanah), an incantation (lahash) is included to say at that time. It begins:

אני פב"פ נושא אצלי שלושה שושנים אחת היא החמה ואחת היא הלבנה והשלישית היא חסד אל

I, name son of name, carry with me three roses; one is the sun, and one is the moon, and the third is the kindness of God.


Can anyone shed light on the context or provenance of this?
