6 days after the restored Qing Dynasty adopted the anthem, the Wuchang Uprising aborted the Dynasty’s rebirth. For obvious reasons, the anthem didn’t quite catch on.
"Solidify our golden empire,
Underneath the aegis of heaven,
All of civilization will cease to toil,
United in happiness and mirth,
As long as the Qing rules.
Our empire is emblazoned by light,
And our boundaries are vast and preserved.
The expanse stretches infinitely,
The sea brims with turbulence.”
