Alas for me ， who am [as] a little child ，
On whom has devolved the unsettled State ！
Solitary am I and full of distress .
Oh ！ my great Father ，
All thy life long ， thou wast filial .
Thou didst think of my great grandfather ，
[Seeing him ， as it were ，] ascending and descending in the court .
I ， the little child ，
Day and night will be so reverent .
Oh ！ ye great kings ，
As your successor ， I will strive not to forget you .
