1.
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valley;
(Repeat previous line),
201
As the lily among the thorns, so is my love among the daughters;
As the apple tree, the apple tree among the trees of the wood,
So is my beloved among the sons,
(Repeat previous line).
I sat down under his shadow with great delight.
202
And his fruit was sweet to my taste;
And his fruit, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.
He brought me to the banqueting house,
His banner over me was love,
(Repeat previous 2 lines).
Stay me with flagons, comfort me with apples,
203
For I am sick, for I am sick, for I am sick of love:
I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem,
By the roes, and by the hinds of the field,
That you stir not up, that you stir not up, that you stir not up,
204
Nor awake, awake, awake, awake, my love, till he please.
The voice of my beloved, Behold! he cometh,
Leaping upon the mountains, skipping,
(Repeat previous line twice),
Leaping upon the mountains, skipping upon the hills.
205
My beloved spake, and said unto me,
Rise up, rise up, rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
(Repeat previous line).
The rain is over, the rain is over, the rain is over and gone.
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
