1 “1On my bed night after night I sought him
aWhom my soul loves;
I bsought him but did not find him.
In the astreets and in the squares
2I must seek him whom my soul loves.’
I sought him but did not find him.
3 “aThe watchmen who make the rounds in the city found me,
And I said, ‘Have you seen him whom my soul loves?’
When I found him whom my soul loves;
I bheld on to him and would not let him go
Until I had cbrought him to my mother’s house,
And into the room of her who conceived me.”
Or Let me arise
Or Let me seek
