Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1For mind, for intellect, for thought, for purpose, for intelligence,.
For sense, for hearing, and for sight, let us adore with sacrifice.
2For expiration, vital air, and breath that amply nourishes,
Let us with sacrifice adore Sarasvatī whose reach is wide.
3Let not the Rishis, the divine, forsake us, our own, our very
selves, our lives' protectors.
Do ye, immortal, still attend us mortals, and give us vital power
to live the longer.
