O accomplished Hou-ji,
Thou didst prove thyself the correlate of Heaven ;
Thou didst give grain-food to our multitudes ; –
The immense gift of thy goodness.
Thou didst confer on us the wheat and the barley,
Which God appointed for the nourishment of all ;
And without distinction of territory or boundary,
The rules of social duty were diffused throughout these great regions.
