Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.6, v.11,13

Descendi in hortum meum,
ut viderem poma convallium,
et inspicerem si floruisset vinea
et germinassent mala punica.
Revertere, revertere, Sulamitis,
ut intueamur te.

I went down into my garden
to see the fruits of the valley,
and to see whether the vine flourished
and the pomegranates budded.
Return, return, O Shulamite,
that we might look upon thee.
