Song of Songs

by Nick Osborne

Lord, draw me after you; let us run. I will exult and rejoice in you, I will extol your love more than wine. Rightly do I love you... You, whom my soul loves. Nick, you are beautiful, my love. You are beautiful, my Lord, truly delightful I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. You brought me to the banqueting house, your banner over me is love. Sustain me... refresh me... Behold, there you stand. My beloved Lord speaks and says to me: "Arise my love, my beautiful one, and come away..." "Arise my love, my beautiful one, and come away..." You, my beloved Lord, are mine and I am yours. I sought you, Lord, whom my soul loves; I sought you, but found you not. I will rise now and go about the city, in the streets and in the squares; I will seek you whom my soul loves. I sought you, but found you not. When I found you whom my soul loves, I held you and would not let you go. Or should I say, Lord... When I find you whom my soul loves, I will hold you and not let you go. Nick, you are beautiful, my love, behold you are beautiful... You are all together beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. Come with me, Nick... come with me... You have captivated my heart, Nick, my bride, you have captivated my heart. Nick, how beautiful is your love, how much better is your love than wine. My Lord, my beloved Lord, is knocking, "Open to me, Nick..." My beloved Lord, I am yours and you are mine... my desire... Nick, how beautiful and pleasant you are, O loved one, with all your delights. My beloved Lord, I am yours, and your desire is for me. I will give you my love. Beloved Lord, set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is as strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of you, Lord. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can floods drown it. Make haste, my beloved Lord... make haste...
