'You have received the appointment long-ackowledged, With peace around your happiness and dignity. O happy and courteous sovereign, May you fulfill your years, With pure happiness your constant possession!
'You have helpers and supporters, Men of filial piety and of virtue, To lead you on, and act as wings to you, [So that], O happy and courteous sovereign, You are a pattern to the four quarters [of the kingdom].
'Full of dignity and majesty [are they], Like a jade-mace [in its purity], The subject of praise, the contemplation of hope. O happy and courteous sovereign, [Through them] the four quarters [of the kingdom] are guided by you.
'The male and female phoenix fly about, Their wings rustling, While they settle in their proper resting place. Many are your admirable officers, O king, Ready to be employed by you, Loving you, the son of Heaven.
