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 and all who love him. It reflects the longing between the Bride and the Bridegroom to meet each other….for when will He come?
Rise up my dove, for you are so lovely
Sustain me with cakes of raisins, for I am lovesick
She who taught me everything
How beautiful you are, my love, like an orchard of pomegranates
my cup runs over....Psalm 23
‘The King brought me to his inner chambers’
