Title
My beloved spake by Patrick Hadley (1899 – 1973)
Text
My beloved spake, and said unto me,
Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone;
the flowers appear on the earth;
the time of the singing of birds is come,
and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land;
The fig tree putteth forth her green figs,
and the vines with the tender grave give a good smell.
Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.

Words: Song of Solomon 2: 10-13
Music: Patrick Hadley, 1938
