Lyrics: Song of Solomon 4:8,11; 5:2; 7:5

Veni de Libano, sponsa mea, veni et coronaberis.
Aperi mihi, soror mea sponsa.
Favus distillans labia tua sponsa, et comae capitis tui sicut purpura regis juncta canalibus.

Come with me from Lebanon, my spouse, and you shall be crowned.
Open to me, my sister, my love
Thy lips, my spouse, drop as honeycombs and the bush of thine head is like purple: the king is tied in the rafters.
