Song of Solomon 4: 9 - 5: 1


9 You have ravished my heart, my sister, my bride,
   you have ravished my heart with a glance of your eyes,
   with one jewel of your necklace.
10 How sweet is your love, my sister, my bride!
   how much better is your love than wine,
   and the fragrance of your oils than any spice!
11 Your lips distil nectar, my bride;
   honey and milk are under your tongue;
   the scent of your garments is like the scent of Lebanon.
12 A garden locked is my sister, my bride,
   a garden locked, a fountain sealed.
13 Your channel* is an orchard of pomegranates
   with all choicest fruits,
   henna with nard,
14 nard and saffron, calamus and cinnamon,
   with all trees of frankincense,
myrrh and aloes,
   with all chief spices—
15 a garden fountain, a well of living water,
   and flowing streams from Lebanon.


16 Awake, O north wind,
   and come, O south wind!
Blow upon my garden
   that its fragrance may be wafted abroad.
Let my beloved come to his garden,
   and eat its choicest fruits.

5I come to my garden, my sister, my bride;
   I gather my myrrh with my spice,
   I eat my honeycomb with my honey,
   I drink my wine with my milk.


Eat, friends, drink,
   and be drunk with love.

Luke 5: 33-39

The Question about Fasting

33 Then they said to him, ‘John’s disciples, like the disciples of the Pharisees, frequently fast and pray, but your disciples eat and drink.’ 34Jesus said to them, ‘You cannot make wedding-guests fast while the bridegroom is with them, can you? 35The days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them, and then they will fast in those days.’ 36He also told them a parable: ‘No one tears a piece from a new garment and sews it on an old garment; otherwise the new will be torn, and the piece from the new will not match the old. 37And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise the new wine will burst the skins and will be spilled, and the skins will be destroyed. 38But new wine must be put into fresh wineskins. 39And no one after drinking old wine desires new wine, but says, “The old is good.” *

Psalm 145

1  I will exalt you, O God my King, 
   and bless your name for ever and ever.
2  Every day will I bless you 
   and praise your name for ever and ever.
3  Great is the Lord and highly to be praised; 
   his greatness is beyond all searching out.
4  One generation shall praise your works to another 
   and declare your mighty acts.
5  They shall speak of the majesty of your glory, 
   and I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.
6  They shall speak of the might of your marvellous acts, 
   and I will also tell of your greatness.
7  They shall pour forth the story of your abundant kindness 
   and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
8  The Lord is gracious and merciful, 
   long-suffering and of great goodness.
9  The Lord is loving to everyone 
   and his mercy is over all his creatures.
10  All your works praise you, O Lord, 
   and your faithful servants bless you.
11  They tell of the glory of your kingdom 
   and speak of your mighty power,
12  To make known to all peoples your mighty acts 
   and the glorious splendour of your kingdom.
13  Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; 
   your dominion endures throughout all ages.
14  The Lord is sure in all his words 
   and faithful in all his deeds.
15  The Lord upholds all those who fall 
   and lifts up all those who are bowed down.
16  The eyes of all wait upon you, O Lord, 
   and you give them their food in due season.
17  You open wide your hand 
   and fill all things living with plenty.
18  The Lord is righteous in all his ways 
   and loving in all his works.
19  The Lord is near to those who call upon him, 
   to all who call upon him faithfully.
20  He fulfils the desire of those who fear him; 
   he hears their cry and saves them.
21  The Lord watches over those who love him, 
   but all the wicked shall he destroy.
22  My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord, 
   and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.
