Psalms 63:6-7

2 d  In the day of my trouble I seek the Lord;

when I meditate, my spirit faints.  Selah

The Bride’s Dream

1 On my bed n  by night
I sought o  him whom my soul loves;
p  I sought him, but found him not.
2I will rise now and go about the city,
in q  the streets and in the squares;
I will seek r  him whom my soul loves.
I sought him, but found him not.
3 s  The watchmen found me
as they went about in the city.
“Have you seen him whom my soul loves?”
4Scarcely had I passed them
when I found t  him whom my soul loves.
I u  held him, and would not let him go
until I had v  brought him into my mother’s house,
and into the chamber of w  her who conceived me.

Song of Solomon 5:2-8

The Bride Searches for Her Beloved


2 I slept, but my heart was awake.
A sound! My beloved is x  knocking.
Open to me, my y  sister, my z  love,
my aa  dove, my ab  perfect one,
for my head is wet with dew,
my ac  locks with the drops of the night.”
3 ad  I had put off my garment;
how could I put it on?
I had ae  bathed my feet;
how could I soil them?
4My beloved put his hand to the latch,
and my heart was thrilled within me.
5I arose to open to my beloved,
and my hands dripped with myrrh,
my fingers with af  liquid myrrh,
on the handles of the bolt.
6I opened to my beloved,
but my beloved had turned and gone.
My soul failed me when he ag  spoke.
ah  I sought him, but found him not;
ai  I called him, but he gave no answer.
7 aj  The watchmen found me
as they went about in the city;
they beat me, they bruised me,
they took away my veil,
those watchmen of the walls.
8I ak  adjure you, O al  daughters of Jerusalem,
if you find my beloved,
that you tell him
am  I am sick with love.

Luke 6:12

The Twelve Apostles

12In these days an  he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God.
