Quam pulchri sunt gressus tui,
filia principis!
Collum tuum sicut turris eburnea;
oculi tui divini,
et comae capitis tui sicut purpura regis.
Quam pulchra es,
et quam decora, carissima!


English.png English translation

How beautiful are thy steps,
O daughter of the prince!
Thy neck is as a column of ivory;
thine eyes are divine,
and the hairs of thy head as royal purple.
How beautiful art thou,
and how lovely, my dearest!
