From Cantionum sacrarum... liber secundus, Legnica, 1609.
Lyrics: Song of Solomon, ch. 6, v. 10,12

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

I went down into the garden of nuts, to see the fruits of the valley,
and to see if the vine flourished, and if the pomegranates budded.
Return, return, O Shulamite: return that we may look upon thee.
