A fountain of gardens, a cascade of living waters, streams from Lebanon. Awake, O north wind, and come, thou, south! Blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat partake of its gifts.
Thou that dwellest in the gardens, the companions hearken to thy voice: cause me to hear it. Make haste, my beloved, to this mountains of spices.
In 1584, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina set the entire Latin text of the Song of Songs to music.
