This biblical love song still speaks to our imagination. The love between a king and a peasant girl, the love of nature in all its splendor. The Song of songs is also a loveletter from the Eternal One to his people Israel en reflects the longing between the Bride and the Bridegroom to meet each other….for when will He come?
Open the gate, let the King of glory enter
Rise up my dove, for you are so lovely
Sustain me with cakes of raisins, for I am lovesick
Let us go the fields, there I will give you my love
She who taught me everything
How beautiful you are, my love, like an orchard of pomegranates
my cup runs over....Psalm 23
