I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride

I have come into my garden, my sister, my bride.I have gathered my myrrh with my spice;I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey;I have drunk my wine with my milk.FriendsEat, friends!Drink, yes, drink abundantly, beloved. +
I was asleep, but my heart was awake.It is the voice of my beloved who knocks:"Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled;for my head is filled with dew,and my hair with the dampness of the night." +
I have taken off my robe. Indeed, must I put it on?I have washed my feet. Indeed, must I soil them? +
My beloved thrust his hand in through the latch opening.My heart pounded for him. +
I rose up to open for my beloved.My hands dripped with myrrh,my fingers with liquid myrrh,on the handles of the lock. +
I opened to my beloved;but my beloved left; and had gone away.My heart went out when he spoke.I looked for him, but I didn't find him.I called him, but he didn't answer. +
The watchmen who go about the city found me.They beat me.They bruised me.The keepers of the walls took my cloak away from me. +
I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem,If you find my beloved,that you tell him that I am faint with love. +
How is your beloved better than another beloved,you fairest among women?How is your beloved better than another beloved,that you do so adjure us? +
My beloved is white and ruddy.The best among ten thousand. +
His head is like the purest gold.His hair is bushy, black as a raven. +
His eyes are like doves beside the water brooks,washed with milk, mounted like jewels. +
His cheeks are like a bed of spices with towers of perfumes.His lips are like lilies, dropping liquid myrrh. +
His hands are like rings of gold set with beryl.His body is like ivory work overlaid with sapphires. +
His legs are like pillars of marble set on sockets of fine gold.His appearance is like Lebanon, excellent as the cedars. +
His mouth is sweetness;yes, he is altogether lovely.This is my beloved, and this is my friend,daughters of Jerusalem. +
