Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895], at


A prayer for sacred knowledge and its fruits

1Since, Agni, with our fervent zeal we undergo austerity,
  May we be dear to Sacred Lore, may we be wise and live long
2Agni, we practise acts austere, we undergo austerity.
  So listening to Holy Lore may we grow wise and full of days.
