Song of Songs

Posted on

At night, in my bed, I looked for the one my soul loves;
I looked for him, but could not find him.

So, I will rise and go around the city; in the streets and
in the squares I will look for the one my soul loves;
I looked for him, but could not find him.

The watchmen who go around the city found me;
I asked them: have you seen the one my soul loves?

I stood aside and then I found the one my soul loves;
I held him close and wouldn’t let him go
