Song of Solomon

Collection of poems concerning love between a man and woman.

The beloved is compared to a lily of the valley
(Song of Solomon 3:1)
The Song of Solomon expresses the mutual love of a man and a woman. Traditionally this book has been understood to convey the love of God and his people. The song tells how the woman yearns for her lover, and how the lovers praise each other's beauty.  The woman remembers her lover's springtime visit, tells how she sought him in the night, and envisions the wedding of Solomon. The woman asks that her lover would set her as a seal upon his heart, for love is as strong as death and passion fierce as the grave (8:6).
