毛詩:「《》,天子諸侯。」



嘉賓中心鐘鼓一朝

The red bows unbent,
Were received and deposited.
I have here an admirable guest,
And with all my heart I bestow one on him.
The bells and drums have been arranged in order,
And all the morning will I feast him.

嘉賓中心鐘鼓一朝

The red bows unbent,
Were received and fitted on their frames.
I have here an admirable guest,
And with all my heart I rejoice in him.
The bells and drums have been arranged in order,
And all the morning will I honour him.

嘉賓中心鐘鼓一朝

The red bows unbent,
Were received and placed in their cases.
I have here an admirable guest,
And with all my heart I love him.
The bells and drums have been arranged in order,
And all the morning will I pledge him.
