Unchecked Copy BoxSng 2:2 - So is my friend among the daughters!

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 2:14 - My dove, in clefts of the rock, In a secret place of the ascent, Cause me to see thine appearance, Cause me to hear thy voice, For thy voice is sweet, and thy appearance comely.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 2:15 - Seize ye for us foxes, Little foxes -- destroyers of vineyards, Even our sweet-smelling vineyards.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 2:16 - My beloved is mine, and I am his, Who is delighting among the lilies,

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 2:17 - Till the day doth break forth, And the shadows have fled away, Turn, be like, my beloved, To a roe, or to a young one of the harts, On the mountains of separation!
