The Bride's Admiration

1 "I F21 am the rose R32 F22 of Sharon, R33

The lily R34 of the valleys."

2 "Like F23 a lily among the thorns,

So is my R35 darling among the maidens." F24

3 "Like F25 an apple R36 F26 tree among the trees of the forest,

So is my beloved among the young F27 men.

In his shade I took great delight and sat down,

And his fruit R37 was sweet to my taste. F28

4 "He has brought R38 me to his banquet F29 hall,

And his banner R39 over me is love.

5 "Sustain me with raisin R40 cakes,

Refresh me with apples, R41 F30

Because I R42 am lovesick.

6 "Let his R43 left hand be under my head

And his R43 right hand embrace R44 me."

7 "I F31 adjure R45 you, O daughters R46 of Jerusalem,

By the gazelles R47 or by the hinds R48 of the field,

That R45 you do not arouse or awaken my love

Until she F32 pleases."

8 "Listen! F33 My beloved!

Behold, he is coming,

Climbing on R49 the mountains,

Leaping on the hills!

9 "My beloved is like a gazelle R50 or a young R51 stag. F34

Behold, he is standing behind our wall,

He is looking through the windows,

He is peering through R52 the lattice.

10 "My beloved responded and said to me,

`Arise, R53 my darling, my beautiful one,

And come along.

11 `For behold, the winter is past,

The rain is over and gone.

12 `The flowers have already appeared in the land;

The time has arrived for pruning F35 the vines,

And the voice of the turtledove R54 has been heard in our land.

13 `The fig R55 tree has ripened its figs,

And the vines R56 in blossom have given forth their fragrance.

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one,

And come along!' "

14 "O F36 my R57 dove, in R58 the clefts of the rock, F37

In the secret place of the steep pathway, F38

Let me see your form, F39

Let R59 me hear your voice;

For your voice is sweet,

And your form F39 is lovely." R60

15 "Catch R61 F40 the foxes for us,

The little F41 foxes that are ruining the vineyards,

While our vineyards R62 are in blossom."

16 "My R63 F42 beloved is mine, and I am his;

He pastures R64 his flock among the lilies.

17 "Until R65 the F43 cool of the day when the shadows flee away,

Turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle R66

Or a young stag on R67 the mountains of Bether." F44
