Lyrics: Proverbs 5: 18,19

Lætare de uxore adolescentæ tuæ.
Sit illa tibi cerva carissima, et hinnulus gratissimus:
ubera eius inebrient te, omni tempore;
in amore eius delecteris iugiter.

Rejoice with the wife of thy youth.
Let her be as the loving hind and pleasant roe:
let her breasts satisfy thee at all times,
and delight in her love continually.
(trans. Geneva Bible)
