Song of Solomon 3:1-5 NIV

Song of Solomon 3:1-5 NIV [1] All night long on my bed I looked for the one my heart loves; I looked for him but did not find him. [2] I will get up now and go about the city, through its streets and squares; I will search for the one my heart loves. So I looked for him but did not find him. [3] The watchmen found me as they made their rounds in the city. "Have you seen the one my heart loves?" [4] Scarcely had I passed them when I found the one my heart loves. I held him and would not let him go till I had brought him to my mother's house, to the room of the one who conceived me. [5] Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you by the gazelles and by the does of the field: Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires.
