The Wu; narrative. Sung in the ancestral temple to the music regulating the dance in honor of the achievements of King Wu.
You were august and great, O royal Wu,
And showed your matchless strength in every plan.
Your father Wên, accomplished he and true,
Had on the road to triumph led the van. p. 450
The heritage you from your sire obtained,
And soon the oppressive rule of Yin was staid.
O’er all its hosts the victory you gained,
And, firmly ’stablished, all the land you swayed.
