“Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more delightful than wine.” SOS 1:2
Handsome and Charming
The first thing I think of when I hear the word “charming” is a prince in a fairytale. Reading this passage, it sure seems like the woman in Song of Solomon thinks of her beloved husband as her handsome and charming “prince”!

A Lily Among Thorns
Was there ever a time when your spouse was crazy about you, that he thought you were a “lily among thorns”?
“Like a lily among thorns is my darling among the young women.” SOS 2:2
The One My Heart Loves
This is one of my favorite Bible passages about love because it’s exactly how I feel about my husband. From the minute I knew he was “the one” I knew I’d never let him go!
“…when I found the one my heart loves I held him and would not let him go.. SOS 3:4
My love language is one hundred percent “words of affirmation,” if my husband would just tell me this every day, (even if it’s not true) I’d be a happy wife!

Can you relate to this one? When did you realize your man had stolen your heart?
“…you have stolen my heart with one glance of your eyes…” SOS 4:9
Radiant and Ruddy
“Radiant and ruddy” might not be words we would use to describe a good-looking guy these days, but at the time I’m sure they were a pretty big compliment.

Marriage summed up…I am his and he is mine!

His One Desire
Marriage goals…being desired by your husband!

In His Embrace
I love the picture pained in this Bible verse about relationships. Just such a beautiful description of spending time with the one you love.
“His left arm is under my head and his right arm embraces me.” SOS 8:3
Strong As Death
Anyone who has had a marriage come to an end knows the loss can feel like death. Love can burn inside you so strongly that nothing can make it burn out!
“…for love is as strong as death, it’s jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love, rivers cannot sweep it away.” SOS 8:6b-7a
There are many Bible passages about love, especially in the book of Song of Solomon. These are just a few of my favorite verses that can be found there, but there are many more. If you haven’t read Song of Solomon from beginning to end I definitely suggest you do. It’s not a long read, and the chapters contain a beautiful love story.
