My dove, my beautiful one,

Arise, arise!
The night-dew lies

Upon my lips and eyes.

The odorous winds are weaving

A music of sighs:
Arise, arise,

My dove, my beautiful one!

I wait by the cedar tree,

My sister, my love,
White breast of the dove,

My breast shall be your bed.

The pale dew lies

Like a veil on my head.
My fair one, my fair dove,

Arise, arise!
