|R- Hark! My Beloved here He comes
Skipping leaping upon the hills.
Like a young stag or a gazelle
Behold He is standing behind our wall.
1- I'm dark but lovely in Your eyes
The sun has tanned me and my mother's sons
Looked in anger upon my iniquity
Only you Love see me pretty.
2- My sister, my spouse, my sweet dove,
Better than wine is your love,
Rise up, rise up My fair one,
Winter is past and the rain is gone.
3- Catch us the foxes, the little ones;
Tell my Beloved among the sons,
Tell Him I dosed, tell Him I slept;
And my own vineyard I haven't kept.
4- Tell me O You Whom I love:
Where do You feed Your flock?
"Fairest among women follow in the footsteps
Feed your little goats besides the Shepherds' tents."
5- My Beloved's mine and I am His.
He feeds His flock among the lilies.
With great delight I sat in His shade,
And His fruit is sweet to my taste.
