Latin.png Latin text

Tota pulchra es, amica mea, et macula non est in te: veni sponsa mea.
Vulnerasti cor meum, soror mea, sponsa:
vulnerasti cor meum in uno oculorum tuorum et in uno crine colli tui.
Quam pulchræ sunt mammæ tuæ soror mea, sponsa.

Thou art wholly fair, my love, nor is there any stain in thee; come with me my spouse.
Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse;
thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck.
My sister, my spouse, how fair is thy love?
