Nigra sum sed formosa, a 6

Nigra sum sed formosa, a 6

Text


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.


 


[NEV]

Translation


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.


 


[NEV]
