Vidi speciosam, a 6

In Assumptione Beatiss: Virg: Mariae [1572]
Cramer: 
PH027

Text

Vidi, speciosam
sicut columbam ascendentem
desuper riuos aquarum
cuius inestimabilis odor erat
nimis in vestimentis eius
et sicut dies verni
circumdabant eam flores rosarum
et illia convallium.
 
[NEV]

Translation

I saw the fair one rising like a dove
above the streams of water.
Whose priceless fragance clung to her garments.
And as on a spring day, she was
surrounded by roses and lily-of-the-valley.
Who is this who rises from the desert
like a pillar of smoke from inciense of myrrh and frnakincense?
And as on a spring day, she was
surrounded by roses and lily-of-the-valley. 
 
[NEV]
