Lyrics: Song of Solomon (adapted/paraphrased)

Veni in hortum meum, soror O sponsa,
et mala punicorum gusta fragantia siqua desideras revertere ad tuos.
O suna mitis speciosa valde.

I have come into my garden O sister my spouse
and the strongly scented pomegranates, as you had wished, will once more be yours.
O meek one, intensely beautiful.
