Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch.2, v.13,14

Surge propera, amica mea, speciosa mea, et veni.
Columba mea, in foraminibus petrae,
in caverna maceriae, ostende mihi faciem tuam, sonet vox tua in auribus meis: vox enim tua dulcis, et facies tua decora.

Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
O my dove, who is in the clefts of the rock,
in the secret places of the stairs, let me see your countenance, let me hear your voice; for sweet is your voice, and your countenance is comely.
