Latin.png Latin text

Veni de Libano, sponsa mea, et coronaberis;
aperi mihi soror mea sponsa
favus distillans labia tua, sponsa
et comae capitis tui sicut purpura regis vincta canalibus.

English.png English translation

Come from Lebanon, my bride, and be crowned;
Open to me, my sister, my bride,
your lips distilling nectar, my bride.
and your flowing locks of your head are as purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.

Translation by James Gibb
