TOMáS LUIS DE VICTORIA lyrics : "Nigra Sum Sed Formosa"


Nigra sum sed formosa filia Jerusalem,
ideo dilexit me Rex,
et introduxit me in cubiculum suum.
et dixit mihi: surge amica mea et veni.
Jam hiems transiit, imber abiit, et recessit,
flores apparuerunt in terra nostra,
tempus putationis advenit.


I am a black, but beautiful daughter of Jerusalem,
Therefore I have pleased the Lord,
And he has brought me into his chamber.
And said to me: "Rise up, my darling, and come.
For now the winter is past, the rain is over and gone,
The flowers have appeared in our land,
The time to prune the vines has come."
