CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Hearken. O daughter, and consider - This is the beginning of the address by the companions of the bride to their mistress; after having, in the preceding verses, addressed the bridegroom; or, rather, given a description of his person, qualities, and magnificence.

We, too, must let our business go if it stands between us and the Lord, and in any case let it henceforth be His business and His alone, pursued for Him, controlled by Him, and its profits wholly dedicated to Him, and used as He …

So Then the Father is Lord and the Son is Lord...
Letter Lxv. To Principia.
However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.
1 Peter 3:6
like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord. You are her daughters if you do what is right and do not give way to fear.
So Sarah laughed to herself as she thought, "After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I now have this pleasure?"
Song of Solomon 7:10
I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me.
