O quam tu pulchra es, amica mea

Language: Latin

O quam tu pulchra es, amica mea
columba mea, formosa mea,
immaculata mea!
O quam tu pulchra es!
Oculi tui, oculi columbarum.
O quam tu pulchra es!
Capilli tui sicut greges caprarum.
O quam tu pulchra es!
Dentos tui sicut greges tonsarum.
O quam tu pulchra es!
Sicut vitta coccinea labia tua.
O quam tu pulchra es!
Sicut turris David collum tuum.
O quam tu pulchra es!
Duo ubera tua sicut duo hinnuli
capreae gemelli.
O quam tu pulchra es!
