<poem>
 
Nigra sum sed formosa filiae Hierusalem,
 
ideo dilexit me rex, et introduxit me in cubiculum suum,
 
et dixit mihi: Surge, surge amica mea et veni,
 
ostende mihi faciem tuam, sonet vox tua in auribus meis,
 
vox enim tua dulcis, et facies tua decora.

<poem>
 
I am black but comely, O daughters of Jerusalem,
 
therefore have I pleased the Lord, and he hath brought me into his chamber,
 
and hath said unto me: Arise my love, my fair one, and come away,
 
let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice,
 
for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance comely.
