Song of Songs 1:1 {Absent from this edition.} Song of Songs 1:2 O that he wold kysse me with the kysses of his mouth: for thy loue is more pleasaunt then wyne, Song of Songs 1:3 & that, because of þe good & pleasaunt sauoure of thy most preciouse balmes. Thy name is a swete smellynge oyntment when it is shed forthe, therfore do the maydens loue the: Song of Songs 1:4 drawe thou me vnto þe: we wyll runne after the. The kynge hath brought me into hys preuy chambres. We wyll be glad & reioyce in the, we thynke more of thy loue then of wyne. They that be ryghteous loue þe.

She confesseth her deformity,

Song of Songs 1:5 I am black (O ye daughters of Ierusalem) lyke as the tentes of þe Cedarenes, & as the hangynges of Salomon: Song of Songs 1:6 but yet am I fayre & well fauoured withall. Maruell not at me þt I am so black: for why? the sunne hath shyned vpon me. My mothers chyldren had euell wyll at me, they made me þe keper of the vyneyeardes: but myne owne vyneyarde haue I not kept.

and prayeth to be directed to his flock.

Song of Songs 1:7 Tell me of him whom my soule louethe where thou fedest the shepe, where thou makest them rest at þe noone daye: for why shall I belyke him, that goeth wronge aboute þe flockes of thy companyons?

Christ directeth her to the shepherd's tents:

Song of Songs 1:8 Yf thou knowe not thy selfe (O thou fayrest amonge wemen) then go thy waye forth after þe fotesteppes of the shepe, and fede thy goates besyde the shepeherdes tentes.

and shewing his love to her,

giveth her gracious promises.

Song of Songs 1:11 a neck bande of golde wyll we make the with syluer buttons.

Song of Songs 1:12 When the kynge sytteth at the table, he shall smell my Nardus: Song of Songs 1:13 a bondell of Myrre is my loue vnto me: he wyll lye betwixte my breastes.

Song of Songs 1:16 O how fayre art thou (my beloued) howe well fauored art þu? Oure bed is decte with floures, Song of Songs 1:17 the sylynges of oure house are of Cedre tree, and oure crosse ioyntes of Cypresse.
