022:002:001
I am the rose of Sharon,
and the lily of the valleys.


022:002:002
As the lily among thorns,
so is my love among the daughters.


022:002:003
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood,
so is my beloved among the sons.
I sat down under his shadow with great delight,
and his fruit was sweet to my taste.


022:002:004
He brought me to the banqueting house,
and his banner over me was love.


022:002:005
Stay me with flagons,
comfort me with apples:
for I am sick of love.


022:002:006
His left hand is under my head,
and his right hand doth embrace me.


022:002:007
I charge you,
O ye daughters of Jerusalem,
by the roes,
and by the hinds of the field,
that ye stir not up,
nor awake my love,
till he please.


022:002:008
The voice of my beloved!
behold,
he cometh leaping upon the mountains,
skipping upon the hills.


022:002:009
My beloved is like a roe or a young hart:
behold,
he standeth behind our wall,
he looketh forth at the windows,
shewing himself through the lattice.


022:002:010
My beloved spake,
and said unto me,
Rise up,
my love,
my fair one,
and come away.


022:002:011
For,
lo,
the winter is past,
the rain is over and gone;


022:002:012
The flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;


022:002:013
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell.
Arise,
my love,
my fair one,
and come away.


022:002:014
O my dove,
that art in the clefts of the rock,
in the secret places of the stairs,
let me see thy countenance,
let me hear thy voice;
for sweet is thy voice,
and thy countenance is comely.


022:002:015
Take us the foxes,
the little foxes,
that spoil the vines:
for our vines have tender grapes.


022:002:016
My beloved is mine,
and I am his:
he feedeth among the lilies.


022:002:017
Until the day break,
and the shadows flee away,
turn,
my beloved,
and be thou like a roe or a young hart upon the mountains of Bether.
