His lambs's fur is glossy,
Truly smooth and beautiful.
That officer,
Rests in his lot and will not change.


His lambs's fur, with its cuffs of leopard-skin.
Looks grandly martial and strong.
That officer,
In the country will ever hold to the right.

How splendid is his lamb's fur!
How bright are its three ornaments!
That officer,
Is the ornament of the country.
