” title=”Smile” /> B 2 Let him kiss me with kisses of his mouth!
More delightful is your love than wine!
Your name spoken is a spreading perfume-
that is why the maidens love you.
D We will follow you eagerly!
B Bring me, O king, to your chambers.
D With you we rejoice and exult,
we extol your love; it is beyond wine:
how rightly you are loved!
B 3 I am as dark-but lovely,
O daughters of Jerusalem-
As the tents of Kedar,
as the curtains of Salma.
4 Do not stare at me because I am swarthy,
because the sun has burned me.
My brothers have been angry with me;
they charged me with the care of the vineyards:
my own vineyard I have not cared for.
B 5 Tell me, you whom my heart loves,
where you pasture your flock,
where you give them rest at midday,
Lest I be found wandering
after the flocks of your companions.
G If you do not know,
O most beautiful among women,
Follow the tracks of the flock
and pasture the young ones
near the shepherds’ camps.
G 6 To the steeds of Pharaoh’s chariots
would I liken you, my beloved:
Your cheeks lovely in pendants,
your neck in jewels.
We will make pendants of gold for you,
and silver ornaments.
B 7 For the king’s banquet
my nard gives forth its fragrance.
8 My lover is for me a sachet of myrrh
to rest in my bosom.
9 My lover is for me a cluster of henna
from the vineyards of Engedi.
G 10 Ah, you are beautiful, my beloved,
ah, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves!
B 11 Ah, you are beautiful, my lover-
yes, you are lovely.
Our couch, too, is verdant;
the beams of our house are cedars,
our rafters, cypresses.
