Latin.png Latin text

Tota pulchra es, amica mea,
et macula non est in te.
Veni de Libano, sponsa mea,
veni coronaberis.
Vulnerasti cor meum soror mea, sponsa mea,
Favus distillans labia tua,
mel et lac sub lingua tua.

Thou art all fair, my dear one,
and no stain is in thee.
Come from Libanus, my spouse,
come, thou shall be crowned.
Thou hast wounded my heart, my sister, my spouse.
Thy lips, my spouse, are as a dripping honeycomb,
honey and milk are under thy tongue.
