Dilectus meus descendit in hortum suum ad areolam aromatum,
ut pascatur in hortis suis, et lilia colligat.

Ego dilecto meo, et dilectus meus mihi,
qui pascitur inter lilia.

Revertere dilecte mi ut intueamur te
et mane surgamus ad vineas
videamus si floruit vinea
si flores fructus parturiunt,
si floruerunt mala punica.
Ibi dabo tibi ubera mea.
