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

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.
