廟會Temple Festival

廟會Temple Festival (Translated by Elton Chen )

歡鑼喜鼓咚得隆咚鏘 鈸鐃穿雲霄
The joyful sound of gongs, drums and cymbals pierce through the clouds and into the sky.
盤柱青龍探頭望   石獅笑張嘴
The bluish green dragons wrapped around the columns listen outwardly.
The lions of stone open their mouth and rejoice as they listen to the chimes of the cymbals.
紅燭火檀香燒     菩薩滿身香
Red candles and incense cover the Buddha in aromatic senses.
祈祝年冬收成好   遊子都平安
People pray for an abundant harvest and the safety of travelers out working and studying.
歡鑼喜鼓咚得隆咚鏘 鈸鐃穿雲霄
The joyful sound of gongs, drums and cymbals pierce through the clouds and into the sky.
范謝將軍站兩旁   叱吒想當年
Generals Fan and Shie stand guard.   Thinking about their golden years.
戰天神護鄉民     魂魄在人間
Fighting and protecting the villagers.  Spirit surrounds you and me.
悲歡聚散總無常   知足心境寬
Joys and sorrows cannot be predicted.  Be content with whichever you get.
