Quo abiit dilectus tuus, o pulcherrima mulierum?
Quo declinavit dilectus tuus et queremus eum tecum?
Dilectus meus descendit in hortum suum ut pascatur in hortis suis et lilia colligat.
Qualis est dilectus tuus, o pulcherrima mulierum?
Sicut malus inter ligna silvarum sic dilectus meus inter filias.
En dilectus meus loquitur mihi:
surge propera amica mea, columba mea, formosa mea et veni.
