Lyrics: Song of Solomon 2:1-3 & 4:12,15

Ego flos campi et lilium convallium.
Sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica mea inter filias.
Sicut malus inter ligna silvarum, sic dilectus meus inter filios.
Hortus conclusus soror mea sponsa, hortus conclusus fons signatus.
Fons hortorum puteus aquarum viventium quae fluunt impetu de Libano.

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.
As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.
As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons.
A garden inclosed is my sister, my spouse; a spring shut up, a fountain sealed.
A fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and streams from Lebanon.
