Original text and translations
Many waters cannot quench love;
neither can the floods drown it.
Rise up, my fair one, and come away.
For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
The flowers appear on the earth,
the time of the singing of the birds is come.
Set me as a seal upon thine heart,
as a seal upon thine arm,
for love is strong as death,
jealousy is cruel as the grave,
the coals thereof are coals of fire.
