2 O God, my God: to you, I keep vigil until first light. For you, my soul has thirsted, to you my body, in so many ways.
3 By a deserted land, both inaccessible and waterless, so I have appeared in the sanctuary before you, in order to behold your virtue and your glory.
4 For your mercy is better than life itself. It is you my lips will praise.
5 So will I bless you in my life, and I will lift up my hands in your name.
6 Let my soul be filled, as if with marrow and fatness; and my mouth will give praise with exultant lips.
7 When I have remembered you on my bed in the morning, I will meditate on you.
8 For you have been my helper. And I will exult under the cover of your wings.
9 My soul has clung close to you. Your right hand has supported me.
Song of Songs 3:1-4
1 Bride: On my bed, throughout the night, I sought him whom my soul loves. I sought him, and did not find him.
2 I will rise up, and I will circle through the city. Through the side streets and thoroughfares, I will seek him whom my soul loves. I sought him, and did not find him.
3 The watchers who guard the city found me: "Have you seen him whom my soul loves?"
4 When I had passed by them a little, I found him whom my soul loves. I held him, and would not release him, until I would bring him into my mother's house, and into the chamber of her who bore me.
