Oh ！ powerful was the king's army ；
But he nursed it in obedience to circumstances while the time was yet dark .
When the time was clearly bright ，
He thereupon donned his grand armour .
We have been favoured to receive ，
What the martial king accomplished .
To deal aright with what we have inherited ，
We have to be sincere imitators of thy course ， [O king] .
