Song of Solomon 8:6a,7a

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.

Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.


Set me as a seal upon thine heart (1938), composed by Sir William Walton (1902-1983)
