When is the last time you recited under candlelight the Song of Solomon to your spouse? If you want to be especially romantic, start with 6:4-12. Here are 25 versions to choose from. Better yet, sing it softly to the one that you love:

To quote one of the authors, Ralph Erskine:

The composure upon every text here is such, as, I think, without great violence done to it, can never be applied to any lovers inferior to that glorious Bridegroom, the Lamb of God; and the Bride, the Lamb's wife, as the church is designed, Rev. xxi. 9.

You'll be glad to note that most of the versions on the webpage take the Song to be speaking of Christ and his bride.
