Tota pulchra es amica mea,
et macula non est in te,
favus distillans labia tua,
mel et lac sub lingua tua,
odor unguentorum tuorum super omnia aromata.
Iam enim hiems transiit,
imber abiit et recessit;
flores apparuerunt,
vineæ florentes odorem dederunt
et vox turturis audita est in terra nostra.
Surge propera amica mea,
et veni de Libano,
veni egrediamur foras in agrum,
videamus si floruissent vineæ
et germinassent mala punica
veni columba mea,
veni coronaberis.
