Súrge, própera, amíca méa,
formósa méa, et véni.
Jam énim híems tránsiit;
Imber ábiit, et recéssit.
Flóres apparuérunt
in térra nóstra.
Témpus putatiónis advénit;
Vox túrturis
audíta est in térra nóstra;
Fícus prótulit
gróssos súos;
Víneae floréntes
dedérunt odórem súum.

Súrge, formósa méa, amíca méa,
spónsa méa, et véni:
Osténde míhi fáciem túam,
Sónet vox túa in áuribus méis;
Vox énim túa dúlcis,
et fácies túa decóra.

Arise, make haste, my love,
my beauty, and come.
For lo, the winter is past;
The rain is over and gone.
Flowers have appeared
in our land.
The time of pruning has come;
The voice of the turledove
is heard in our land;
The fig tree has put forth
its first figs;
The blooming vines
have given their fragrance.

Arise, my beauty, my love,
my betrothed, and come:
Show me your face,
Let your voice sound in my ears;
For your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely.
