Lyrics: Song of Solomon 1: 1,2

Osculetur me osculo oris sui: quia meliora sunt ubera tua vino.
Fragrantia unguentis optimis oleum effusum nomen tuum.
Ideo adulescentulæ dilexerunt te.

Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine.
Because of the savour of thy good ointments thy name is as ointment poured forth.
Therefore do the virgins love thee.
