Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:1 - I have come in to my garden, my sister-spouse, I have plucked my myrrh with my spice, I have eaten my comb with my honey, I have drunk my wine with my milk. Eat, O friends, drink, Yea, drink abundantly, O beloved ones!
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:2 - I am sleeping, but my heart waketh: The sound of my beloved knocking! 'Open to me, my sister, my friend, My dove, my perfect one, For my head is filled with dew, My locks with drops of the night.'
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:3 - I have put off my coat, how do I put it on? I have washed my feet, how do I defile them?

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:5 - I rose to open to my beloved, And my hands dropped myrrh, Yea, my fingers flowing myrrh, On the handles of the lock.
Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:6 - I opened to my beloved, But my beloved withdrew -- he passed on, My soul went forth when he spake, I sought him, and found him not. I called him, and he answered me not.

Unchecked Copy BoxSng 5:11 - His head is pure gold -- fine gold, His locks flowing, dark as a raven,
