(Ct 2, 10-12)
Surge, propera, amica mea, et veni:
iam enim hiems transiit, imber abiit et recessit:
Flores apparuerunt in terra nostra:
tempus putationis advenit.

Levántate, date prisa, amiga mía, y ven;
ya pasó el invierno, la tormenta se alejó y desapareció;
han aparecido flores en nuestra tierra;
llegó el tiempo de la poda.
Translation by Alejandro Borrego Pérez
