Set Me As A Seal Upon Your Heart (Leg mig som en seglring ved dit hjerte) is a setting for SATB choir a cappella of one of the most famous passages of King Solomon’s Song of Songs. (other version : for soprano and organ/or piano)

 

Set me as a seal upon your heart,
as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death,
passion as cruel as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
a most vehement flame. 
Raging waters cannot quench love,
neither can floods sweep it away.

Song of Songs 8, 6-7
