The Chinese people presented the whole world a splendid opening ceremony and the closing ceremony was also a successful one with grandeur.The Bird's Nest witnessed the huge event which might be, arguably, unprecedented in the history of Olympic Games . I must admit it was a great pity that for some reasons i did not watch the opening ceremony from begining to end but i found the Olympic anthem sung at the closing ceremony striked a chord immensely. What i have searched about the song are as follows. I hope you like them!
These are the lyrics sung for the Olympic anthem in English.
Immortal spirit of antiquity,
Father of the true, beautiful and good,
Descend, appear, shed over us thy light
Upon this ground and under this sky
Which has first witnessed thy（古，你的） unperishable fame.
Give life and animation to those noble games!
Throw wreaths of fadeless flowers to the victors
In the race and in strife!
Create in our breasts, hearts of steel!
Shine in a roseate hue and form a vast temple
To which all nations throng to adore thee,
Oh immortal spirit of antiquity.
