Thou art all fair my love;
there is no spot in thee.
Thou hast ravished my heart,
my sister, my spouse;
thou hast ravished my heart
with thine eyes.

Thy lips, o my spouse,
drop as the honeycomb;
honey and milk
are under thy tongue;
how fair is thy love,
my sister, my spouse!
how much better is thy love
than wine.

Awake, o north wind,
and come, thou south,
blow upon my garden,
that the spices thereof
may flow out.

Let my beloved
come into his garden
and eat his pleasant fruits.
