Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:1 - Young Man
You are beautiful, my darling,
beautiful beyond words.
Your eyes are like doves
behind your veil.
Your hair falls in waves,
like a flock of goats winding down the slopes of Gilead.

recently shorn and freshly washed.
Your smile is flawless,
each tooth matched with its twin.[fn]

your mouth is inviting.
Your cheeks are like rosy pomegranates
behind your veil.

jeweled with the shields of a thousand heroes.

and the night shadows flee,

beautiful in every way.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:8 - Come with me from Lebanon, my bride,

where the lions have their dens
and leopards live among the hills.

my treasure,[fn] my bride.
You hold it hostage with one glance of your eyes,
with a single jewel of your necklace.

my treasure, my bride.
Your love is better than wine,
your perfume more fragrant than spices.

a secluded spring, a hidden fountain.

with rare spices—
henna with nard,

fragrant calamus and cinnamon,
with all the trees of frankincense, myrrh, and aloes,
and every other lovely spice.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 4:15 - You are a garden fountain,
a well of fresh water
streaming down from Lebanon’s mountains.

Awake, north wind!
Rise up, south wind!
Blow on my garden
and spread its fragrance all around.
Come into your garden, my love;
taste its finest fruits.
