Latin.png Latin text

Ecce tu pulcher es dilecte mi et decorus.
Lectulus noster floridus,
tigna domorum nostrarum cedrina,
laquearia cupressina.
Ego flos campi et lilium convallium.

English.png English translation

Behold thou art fair, my beloved, and comely.
Our bed is flourishing.
The beams of our houses are of cedar,
our rafters of cypress trees.
I am the flower of the field,
and the lily of the valleys.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

[Zij:]
Wat knap ben je toch, mijn liefste en wat bekoorlijk.
Ons bed is het bloemenveld,
de balken van onze vertrekken zijn ceders,
de plafonds zijn cipressen.
Ik ben een weidebloem en een lelietje van dalen.

Translation by Anton Hendriks, Ben Terstegge & Hanneke Pot
