Latin.png Latin text

Vulnerasti cor meum, soror mea, sponsa,
vulnerasti cor meum in uno oculorum tuorum et in uno crine colli tui.
Quam pulchrae sunt mammae tuae, soror mea, sponsa.
Pulchriora sunt ubera tua vino, et odor unguentorum tuorum super omnia aromata.

You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride,
you have ravished my heart with a glance of your eyes, with one jewel of your necklace.
How beautiful are your breasts, my sister, my bride!
how much better are your breasts than wine, and the fragrance of your oils than any spice.
