- Behold, thou art faire, my loue, behold thou art faire, thou hast doues eyes within thy lockes: thy haire is as a flocke of goats, that appeare from mount Gilead.
- Thy teeth are like a flocke of sheepe that are euen shorne, which came vp from the washing: whereof euery one beare twinnes, and none is barren among them.
- Thy lips are like a threed of scarlet, and thy speach is comely: thy temples are like a piece of a pomegranate within thy lockes.
- Thy necke is like the tower of Dauid builded for an armorie, whereon there hang a thousand bucklers, all shields of mightie men.
- Thy two breasts, are like two yong Roes, that are twinnes, which feed among the lillies.
- Untill the day breake, and the shadowes flee away, I will get mee to the mountaines of myrrhe, and to the hill of frankincense.
- Thou art all faire, my loue, there is no spot in thee.
- Come with me from Lebanon (my spouse,) with me from Lebanon: looke from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the Lions dennes, from the mountaines of the Leopards.
- Thou hast rauished my heart, my sister, my spouse;
thou hast rauished my heart, with one of thine eyes, with one chaine of thy necke.
- How faire is thy loue, my sister, my spouse!
how much better is thy loue then wine!
and the smell of thine oyntments then all spices!
- Thy lips, O my spouse!
drop as the hony combe: hony and milke are vnder thy tongue, and the smell of thy garments is like the smell of Lebanon.
- A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse: a spring shut vp, a fountaine sealed.
- Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits, Camphire, with Spikenaed,
- Spikenard and Saffron, Calamus and Cynamom, with all trees of Frankincense, Mirrhe and Aloes, with all the chiefe spices.
- A fountaine of gardens, a well of liuing waters, and streames from Lebanon.
- Awake, O Northwinde, and come thou South, blow vpon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out: let my beloued come into his garden, and eate his pleasant fruits.
