Draw me after you and let’s run together!
The (A)king has brought me into his chambers.”

The Chorus

“We will rejoice in you and be joyful;
We will praise your (B)love more than wine.
Rightly do they love you.”

The Bride

“I am black and (C)beautiful,
You (D)daughters of Jerusalem,
Like the (E)tents of (F)Kedar,
Like the curtains of Solomon.
Do not stare at me because I am [a]dark,
For the sun has tanned me.
My (G)mother’s sons were angry with me;
They made me (H)caretaker of the vineyards,
But I have not taken care of my own vineyard.
