p. a244


A charm to reconcile a King's discontented people

1We bend your minds in union, bend in harmony your hopes and
  You there, who turn to sundered ways, we bend and bow in
2I with my spirit make your spirits captive: these with their
   thoughts follow my thought and wishes.
  I make your hearts submissive to mine order closely attending
   go where I precede you.
3I have invoked both Heaven and Earth, invoked divine
  Indra and Agni have I called: Sarasvati, so may we thrive!
