The Song of Songs

Love Lyrics from the Bible

Striking in its appeal to the senses, the Song of Songs—the Bible’s only book of love poems—is remarkable for its lack of sexual stereotyping and its expression of mutuality in relationships between men and women. Marcia Falk’s rich and lyrical translation, praised by poets and scholars alike, is paired here with the original Hebrew text.
