Song of Songs 3:1-5
I wanted my
I looked for him but he did not appear.
I will look everywhere for my lover.
I will look in all the streets.
I will look in all the market places.’
So I looked for him,
but I did not find him.
as they walked in the streets of the city.
I asked them,
‘Have you seen the man that I love?’
I hugged him and I would not let him go.
I took him to my mother's house.
I took him into my mother's bedroom.
That is where my life started, inside my mother's body.
Do not cause our love to wake up.
Do not cause it to become too strong
until the time is right.
