The Torment of Separation BRIDEGROOM  5 1“I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride; I have gathered my myrrh along with my balsam. I have eaten my honeycomb [B]and my honey; I have drunk my wine [C]and my milk. Eat, friends; Drink and [D]imbibe deeply, O lovers.” BRIDE 2“I was asleep but my heart was awake. A voice! My beloved was knocking: ‘Open to me, my sister, my darling, My dove, my perfect one! For my head is [E]drenched with dew, My locks with the [F]damp of the night.’ 3“I have taken off my dress, How can I put it on again? I have washed my feet, How can I dirty them again? 4“My beloved extended his hand through the opening, And my [G]feelings were aroused for him. 5“I arose to open to my beloved; And my hands dripped with myrrh, And my fingers with [H]liquid myrrh, On the handles of the bolt. 6“I opened to my beloved, But my beloved had turned away and had gone! My [I]heart went out to him as he spoke. I searched for him but I did not find him; I called him but he did not answer me. 7“The watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me, They struck me and wounded me; The guardsmen of the walls took away my shawl from me. 8“I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem, If you find my beloved, As to what you will tell him: For I am lovesick.” CHORUS 9[J]What kind of beloved is your beloved, O most beautiful among women? [K]What kind of beloved is your beloved, That thus you adjure us?” Admiration by the Bride BRIDE 10“My beloved is dazzling and ruddy, [L]Outstanding among ten thousand. 11“His head is like gold, pure gold; His locks are like clusters of dates And black as a raven. 12“His eyes are like doves Beside streams of water, Bathed in milk, And [M]reposed in their setting. 13“His cheeks are like a bed of balsam, Banks of sweet-scented herbs; His lips are lilies Dripping with liquid myrrh. 14“His hands are rods of gold Set with beryl; His abdomen is carved ivory Inlaid with [N]sapphires. 15“His legs are pillars of alabaster Set on pedestals of pure gold; His appearance is like Lebanon Choice as the cedars. 16“His [O]mouth is full of sweetness. And he is wholly desirable. This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”
