Song of Solomon 1

1Bride: May he kiss me with the kiss of his mouth. 2Groom to Bride: So much better than wine are your breasts, fragranced with the finest perfumes. 3Bride to Groom: Your name is oil that has been poured out; therefore, the maidens have loved you. Draw me forward. 4Chorus to Bride: We will run after you in the odor of your perfumes. 5Bride to Chorus: The king has led me into his storerooms. 6Chorus to Bride: We will exult and rejoice in you, remembering your breasts above wine. 7Groom to Bride: The righteous love you. 8Bride to Chorus: O daughters of Jerusalem: I am black, but shapely, like the tabernacles of Kedar, like the tents of Solomon. 9Do not be concerned that I am dark, for the sun has changed my color. 10The sons of my mother have fought against me. They have made me the keeper of the vineyards. My own vineyard I have not kept. 11Bride to Groom: Reveal to me, you whom my soul loves, where you pasture, where you recline at midday, lest I begin to wander after the flocks of your companions. 12Groom to Bride: If you yourself do not know, O most beautiful among women, then go out and follow after the steps of the flocks, and pasture your young goats beside the tabernacles of the shepherds. 13O my love, I have compared you to my company of horsemen against the chariots of Pharaoh. 14Your cheeks are beautiful, like those of a turtledove. Your neck is like a bejeweled collar. 15Chorus to Bride: We will fashion for you chains of gold, accented with reddened silver. 16Groom to Bride: The timbers of our houses are of cedar; our ceilings are of cypress.
