A Seal Upon Your Heart
Language: English 
Set me as a seal upon your heart;
Close your heart to every love
But mine.
Set me as a seal upon your arms;
Hold no one in your arms
But me.
For love is strong as death;
And passion,
Relentless as the grave.
It bursts into flames, and burns
As the raging fire.
For many waters cannot quench love.
Neither can the floods drown it.
Set me, then, as a seal upon your heart;
Close your heart to every love
But mine.
Set me as a seal upon your arms;
Hold no one in your arms
But me.
