Scripture Text: Song of Solomon 4:12 – 15 (22a, page 182)
Verses 12 -15
You are a garden locked, my sister, my bride.
Your are a garden locked, a fountain sealed.
Your tender shoots are a paradise of pomegranates with delicious fruits;
henna blossoms with nard plants, nard and saffron; fragrant reed and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense, myrrh and aloes – with all the best spices. A fountain of gardens you are, a well of fresh water and streams flowing from Lebanon.
