Awake / Sleep Serenade

Language: English

Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; 
blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. 
I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; 
I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; 
I have drunk my wine with my milk: 
eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved. 

I sleep, but my heart waketh:
