Dilectus meus mihi
Language: Latin 
Dilectus meus mihi, et ego illi;
Ego dilecto meo, et dilectus meus mihi.
Ego dormio, et cor meum vigilat.
Vox dilecti mei pulsantis:
Aperi mihi, soror mea,
Amica mea, columba mea,
immaculate mea.
Ad juro vos, filiae Jerusalem,
Si inveneritis dilectum meum,
Ut annuntietis ei quia amore langueo.
Talis est dilectus meus,
Et ipse est amicus me filiae Jerusalem.
