Latin.png Latin text

Quae est ista quae ascendit de deserto
deliciis affluens innixa super dilectum suum.
Tota pulchra es amica mea, suavis et decora
veni de libano, soror mea sponsa,
Veni, coronaberis,
Tota pulchra es amica mea,suavis et decora.

Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness
leaning upon her beloved?
Thou art all fair, my love, beautiful and comely.
Come from Lebanon, my sister, my spouse,
and you will be crowned.
Thou art all fair, my love, beautiful and comely.
