5 A SONG OF SOLOMON
Pone me ut signaculum

Refrain: Many waters cannot quench love;*
neither can the floods drown it.
1 Set me as a seal upon your heart,*
as a seal upon your arm;
2 For love is strong as death
   passion fierce as the grave;*
its flashes are flashes of fire,
   a raging flame.
3 Many waters cannot quench love,*
neither can the floods drown it.
4 If all the wealth of our house
   were offered for love,*
it would be utterly scorned.
Glory . . . Song of Songs 8. 7-8
Many waters cannot quench love;*
neither can the floods drown it.
