The Ancestral Song of Jingao

"Jinyang Autumn" said: "Gao Zu expelled Gongsun Yuan, passed through his hometown, gave cows, wine, grain and silk, and feasted on his father's old age, and Gao Zu sang songs.

” Heaven and earth open up, the sun and moon shine again.

Meet the occasion, worship far and wide.

Will sweep dirty, return home.

Clean up ten thousand miles, total eight wastes.

Honestly return to the old, treat the crime of Wuyang.

The Original Poetry:

晋高祖歌 杂歌谣辞三

《晋阳秋》曰:“高祖伐公孙渊,过故乡,赐牛酒穀帛,会父老故旧饮宴,高祖作歌。

”天地开辟,日月重光。

遭逢际会,奉辞遐方。

将扫逋秽,还过故乡。

肃清万里,总齐八荒。

告诚归老,待罪武阳。
