Nigra sum sed formosa, a 6

Nigra sum sed formosa, a 6


Nigra sum, sed formosa

filia Hierusalem,

ideo dilexit me rex,

et introduxit me in cubiculum suum et dixit mihi

surge, amica mea, et veni

Iam hiems transiit, imber abiit et recessit

flores apparuerunt in terra nostra

tempus putationis advenit.




I am dark-skinned but comely

daughter of Jerusalem,

Therefore have I pleased the Lord and 

he has brought me into his chamber and

said to me:

Arise my love and come.

For now the winter is ast, the rain is

over and gone,

The flowers have appeared in our land;

the time of pruning is come.
