Song of Songs 1:2-4


2 [a]Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth— for your love is more delightful than wine.
3 Pleasing is the fragrance of your perfumes; your name is like perfume poured out. No wonder the young women love you!
Take me away with you—let us hurry! Let the king bring me into his chambers.


4 We rejoice and delight in you[b] ; we will praise your love more than wine.


4 How right they are to adore you!
