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 .
