KKS XX: 1086

A sacred poem:

近江のやかがみの山をたてたればかねてぞ見ゆる君がちとせは

aFumi no ya
kagami no yama wo
tatetareba
kanete zo miyuru
kimi ga titose Fa
In Omi
Mirror Mountain
Has been raised high
To show us all
Our Lord will live a thousand years!

This was an Omi song performed at the Daijōsai of the Present Emperor [Daigo (885-930; r. 897-930)].
