(Ct. 2, 1-2; 4,15)
Ego flos campi et lilium convallium.
Sicut lilium inter spinas sic amica mea inter filias.
Fons hortorum et puteus aquarum viventium
quae fluunt impetu de Libano.

Spanish.png Spanish translation

Yo soy flor del campo y lirio de los valles.
Como el lirio entre las espinas, así es mi amiga entre las doncellas.
Fuente de los huertos y pozo de aguas vivas que con ímpetu fluyen del Líbano.

Translation by Alejandro Borrego Pérez
