Lyrics: Song of Solomon 6: 10,11

Descendi in hortum meum, ut viderem poma convallium,
et inspicerem si floruisset vinea, et germinassent mala punica.
Nescivi, anima mea conturbavit me propter quadrigas Aminadab.

I went down into my garden to see what grew by the brooks,
to look if the vineyard flourished, and if the pomegranates were shot forth.
Then the chariots of the prince of my people made me suddenly afraid.

(trans. Myles Coverdale, 1535)
