Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.7, v,6,11,12

Quam pulchra es, amica mea,
et quam decora formosa mea.
Veni dilecte mi, egrediamur in hortum.
Videamus si floruerunt mala punica:
Ibi dabo tibi ubera mea.
Quam pulchra es, amica mea,
Quia amore langueo.

How beautiful art thou, my love,
And how comely is my fair one.
Come my beloved, let us go forth into the garden.
Let us see if the pomegranates bud forth:
There will I give thee my breasts.
How beautiful art thou, my love,
Since I languish with love.
