Si ignoras te, o pulchra inter mulieres,
egredere et abi post vestigia gregum tuorum
et pasce haedos tuos juxta tabernacula pastorum.
Tota pulchra es, amica mea, et macula non est in te.

Surge, propera, amica mea, columba mea, formosa mea et veni,
ostende mihi faciem tuam, sonet vox tua in auribus mei,
vox enim tua dulcis et facies tua decora.
