The oldest collection of Chinese poetry, more than three hundred songs, odes and hymns. Tr. Legge (en) and Granet (fr, incomplete).
Ah ! solemn is the ancestral temple in its pure stillness.
Reverent and harmonious were the distinguished assistants ;
Great was the number of the officers : –
[All] assiduous followers of the virtue of [king] Wen.
In response to him in heaven,
Grandly they hurried about in the temple.
Distinguished is he and honoured,
And will never be wearied of among men.
