Source: The VVitch - A New-England Folktale (2015), movie.
The movie is set around the year 1630 in New England and it's full of expressions in archaic Modern English.

Wife to Husband: I had dreamed once that I was with Christ upon Earth. Oh, I was so very near Him and in many tears for the assurance of the pardon of me sins, and I was so ravished with His love towards me, I thought it far exceeding the affection of the kindest husband.

I don't understand the part in bold. Could you explain it please?
