Latin.png Latin text

Pulchrae sunt genae tuae, amica mea, soror mea, sponsa.
Oculi tui sicut columbarum.
O pulcherrima Virgo vulnerasti cor meum in uno crine tuo.
Colomba mea sicut botrus Cypri, et ut hinnuli duo gemelli Capreae qui pascunt flores.
Quam pulcher es, et speciosa Virgo:
Veni de Libano amica mea veni, formosa mea, veni de Libano.

Thy cheeks are beautiful, my love, my sister, my spouse.
Thou hast eyes like a dove.
Most beautiful among women, thou hast wounded my heart with one hair of thy head.
My dove is like a cluster of cypress, and [her breasts] are like two young twin roes that browse on flowers.
How lovely thou art, a beautiful maiden:
come from Lebanon, my love, my fair one, come from Lebanon.
