These words are Christ’s answer to the church’s prayer in the close of the foregoing chapter: “Let my beloved come into his garden.” Here He has come, and lets her know it. See how ready God is to hear prayer, how ready Christ is to accept the invitations that His people give Him, though we are backward to hear His calls and accept His invitations. He is free in condescending to us, while we are shy of attending to Him. – Matthew Henry (1662-1714), commenting on Song of Solomon 5.1.*
*Henry, as with many interpreters, uses allegory to interpret Song of Solomon.
