中華文明頌

天生萬物神命令
安置華夏居遠東
山川延綿千萬里
地廣土沃啓文明

有巢燧人受天命
伏羲神農建奇功
黃帝嫘祖安天下
堯舜禹湯九州統

老子道德傳地極
孔丘忠恕事上帝 【註】
墨翟兼愛有哲理
孟軻凡事講仁義

世局不穩藏危機
私慾佔據人心裡
中華文明現曙光
照耀五洲乃天意
============

【註】孔子在他修訂的詩經、尚書、易經裡,不斷提到上帝,他要人們事上帝,如《易經》說:「聖人亨,以享上帝」;《詩經》說:「皇矣上帝,臨下有赫;監觀四方,求民之莫。维此文王,小心翼翼,昭事上帝....」;《尚書》說:「夏氏有罪,予畏上帝,不敢不正」。在《中庸十九》還特別提到孔子的一番話:「郊社之禮,所以事上帝也;宗廟之禮,所以祀乎其先也。明乎郊社之禮、禘嘗之義,治國其如示諸掌乎。」大意是說,郊社之禮乃是敬拜上帝之禮,宗廟之禮乃是追思祖先之禮;一個懂得敬拜上帝、又知道如何追思祖先的人,治理國家就好像讀自己的手掌一樣容易!

Psalm of Chinas Civilization 
=====================

God created all things and decreed
Placed China in Far East
With mountains and rivers stretching thousands of miles
With spacious territories and enriched lands, civilization turned on

Youchao and Suiren anointed by Heaven
Fuxi and Shennong came out with great achievements
Huangdi and Leizu built up the nation
Then all the states were unified by Yao, Shun, Yu, and Tang

The morality enlightened by Laozi prevailed to the end of earth
With loyalty and forgiveness in his heart, Kongzi served God 
Modis universe love was full of words of wisdom
Mengkes preach with righteousness was the theme

As the world is with uncertain crises
Selfishness occupies humans hearts
Chinas civilization becomes the light
Its radiance to light up the world is the providence
