周頌‧臣工之什‧潛 Sacrificial odes of Zhou - Decade Of Chen Gong - Qian



Oh! in the Qi and the Ju,
There are many fish in the warrens; -
Sturgeons, large and snouted,
Tiao, yellow-jaws, mudfish, and carp:
For offerings, for sacrifice,
That our bright happiness may be increased.


English translation: James Legge
