Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.4, v,7,8,10,11

Tota pulchra es amica mea et macula non est in te.
Favus distillans labia tua mel et lac sub lingua tua
odor unguentorum tuorum super omnia aromata.
Surge propera, amica mea.
Veni de Libano, veni coronaberis.

Thou art all fair, my love; there is no spot in thee.
Thy lips drop as the honeycomb: honey and milk are under thy tongue,
the smell of thine ointments is better than all spices.
Arise and hasten, my love.
Come from out of Lebanon.
