Amidst the fretted waters,
The white rocks stand up grandly.
Bringing a robe of white silk, with a vermillion collar,
We will follow you to Wo.
When we have seen the princely lord,
Shall we not rejoice ?

Amidst the fretted waters,
The white rocks stand glistening.
Bringing a robe of white silk, with a vermillion collar, and embroidered,
We will follow you to Hu.
When we have seen the princely lord,
What sorrow will remain to us ?

Amidst the fretted waters,
The white rocks clearly show.
We have heard your orders,
And will not dare to inform any one of them.
