Take me with you(A)—let us hurry.
Oh, that the king would bring[a] me to his chambers.

Y We will rejoice and be glad for you;
we will praise your love more than wine.

W It is only right that they adore you.

Daughters of Jerusalem,(B)
I am dark like the tents of Kedar,(C)
yet lovely(D) like the curtains of Solomon.
Do not stare at me because I am dark,
for the sun has gazed on me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me;(E)
they made me a keeper of the vineyards.(F)
I have not kept my own vineyard.[b]
