(A)Draw me away!

The Daughters of Jerusalem

(B)We will run after [a]you.

The Shulamite

The king (C)has brought me into his chambers.

The Daughters of Jerusalem

We will be glad and rejoice in [b]you.

We will remember your love more than wine.

The Shulamite

Rightly do they love you.

I am dark, but lovely,
O daughters of Jerusalem,
Like the tents of Kedar,
Like the curtains of Solomon.
Do not look upon me, because I am dark,
Because the sun has [c]tanned me.
My mother’s sons were angry with me;
They made me the keeper of the vineyards,
But my own (D)vineyard I have not kept.
