Adjuro vos, filiae Jerusalem (English translation)


Adjuro vos, filiae Jerusalem

In lectulo meo, in noctes,
quæsivi quem diligit anima mea;
quæsivi illum, et non inveni.
Adjuro vos, filiae Jerusalem,
si inveneritis dilectum meum,
ut nuntietis ei quia amore langueo.

I beseech you, daughters of Jerusalem

On my bed, all through the night,
I have been seeking him whom my soul loves;
I have been seeking the one, and I have not found him.
I beseech you, daughters of Jerusalem,
if you find my beloved,
that you tell him that I am sick with love.
