LIVE THE SONG – COME AWAY

Song of Songs 8:13-14

He

13 You who dwell in the gardens
    with friends in attendance,
    let me hear your voice!

She

14 Come away, my beloved,
    and be like a gazelle
or like a young stag
    on the spice-laden mountain

 

LIVE THE SONG – MINE TO GIVE

Song of Songs 8:10-12

She

10 I am a wall,
    and my breasts are like towers.
Thus I have become in his eyes
    like one bringing contentment.
11 Solomon had a vineyard in Baal Hamon;
    he let out his vineyard to tenants.
Each was to bring for its fruit
    a thousand shekels[t] of silver.
12 But my own vineyard is mine to give;
    the thousand shekels are for you, Solomon,
    and two hundred[u] are for those who tend its fruit.

LIVE THE SONG – LITTLE SISTER

Song of Songs 

Friends

We have a little sister,
    and her breasts are not yet grown.
What shall we do for our sister
    on the day she is spoken for? 

If she is a wall,
    we will build towers of silver on her.
If she is a door,
    we will enclose her with panels of cedar.

 

LIVE THE SONG – LOVE IS

Song of Songs 8:5-7

Friends

Who is this coming up from the wilderness
    leaning on her beloved?

She

Under the apple tree I roused you;
    there your mother conceived you,
    there she who was in labor gave you birth.
Place me like a seal over your heart,
    like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
    its jealousy[q] unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
    like a mighty flame.[r]
Many waters cannot quench love;
    rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
    all the wealth of one’s house for love,
    it[s] would be utterly scorned.

LIVE THE SONG – EMBRACE ME

Song of Songs 8:2-4

She

I would lead you
  and bring you to my mother’s house—
    she who has taught me.
I would give you spiced wine to drink,
    the nectar of my pomegranates.
His left arm is under my head
    and his right arm embraces me.
Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you:
    Do not arouse or awaken love
    until it so desires.
