Text

Vidi, speciosam
sicut columbam, ascendentem
desuper rivos aquarum,
cuius inaestimabilis odor erat
nimis in vestimentis eius,
Et sicut dies verni
Circumdabant eam
flores rosarum
et illia convallium.
Quae est ista,
quae ascendit per desertum
sicut virgula fumi
ex aromatibus
myrrhae et thuris?
Et sicut dies verni
Circumdabant eam
flores rosarum
et lilia convallium.

Translation

I saw the fair one
like a dove rising above the
streams of water,
whose incomparable fragance
was strong in her garments;
and as on a spring day
she was circled about by
flowers of roses
and the lily of the valley.
Who is that
who arises from the desert like
pillars of smoke from oncense of
myrrh and frankincense?
And as on a spring day
she was circled about by
flowers of roses
and the lily of the valley.
