I Am the Rose of Sharon (Song of Solomon 2)

I am the rose of Sharon,
The lily of the valley
More splendidly arrayed
Than Solomon in glory

As the lily stands out
Among the thorns that pierce
So is my love for you -
A tender shoot, yet fierce

Beloved, arise and come away
To the banquet of love
I have prepared for you
Upon the mountains above

Let me see your beautiful face
And hear your voice so sweet
Turn and run to me
Until day breaks and shadows flee
