The Shulamite’s Troubled Evening

The Shulamite

2 I sleep, but my heart is awake;

It is the voice of my beloved!

eHe knocks, saying,

“Open for me, my sister, 1my love,

My dove, my perfect one;

For my head is covered with dew,

My 2locks with the drops of the night.”

3 I have taken off my robe;

How can I put it on again?

I have washed my feet;

How can I 3defile them?

4 My beloved put his hand

By the 4latch of the door,

And my heart yearned for him.

5 I arose to open for my beloved,

And my hands dripped with myrrh,

My fingers with liquid myrrh,

On the handles of the lock.
