Vine, o vine, my chosen one.
Vine that I have loved as my own.
Vine, o vine, it was I who planted thee,
chose thee, and planted thee.
Why is thy sweetness turned to gall and bitterness?
Vine, o vine, my chosen one.
I fenced thee round, took hard stones away from thy path
and built a tower in thy defence.
Vine, o vine, my chosen one.
