周頌‧閔予小子之什‧般 Sacrificial odes of Zhou - Decade Of Min Yu Xiao Zi - Ban



Oh! great now is Zhou.
We ascend the high hills,
Both those that are long and narrow, and the lofty mountains;
Yes, and [we travel] along the regulated He,
All under the sky,
Assembling those who now respond to me.
Thus it is that the appointment belongs to Zhou.
