Lyrics: Song of Solomon 1:1-3

Osculetur me osculo oris sui, quia meliora sunt ubera tua vino.
Fragrantia unguentis optimis oleum effusum nomen tuum, ideo adulescentulae dilexerunt te.
Trahe me post te, curremus in odorem unguentorum tuorum.

Let him kiss me with the kiss of his mouth, for thy breasts are better than wine.
Smelling sweet of the best ointments Thy name is as oil poured out, therefore young maidens have loved thee.
Draw me, we will run after thee to the odour of thy ointments.
