My Sister; My Bride

How beautiful you are, my darling.
Oh, how beautiful!
Your eyes behind your veil are doves…

Your lips are like a scarlet ribbon,

Your mouth is lovely…

All beautiful you are, my darling;

There is no flaw in you…

You have stolen my heart, my sister; my bride;

You have stolen my heart

With one glance of your eyes…

How delightful is your love, my sister, my bride!…

Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel.

Your hair is like royal tapestry;

The king is held captive by its tresses.

How beautiful you are and how pleasing,

O love, with your delights.

Song of Songs 4:1,3,7,9-10; 7:5-6
