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


1May these my songs of praise exalt thee, Lord who hast abun-
   dant wealth.
  Men skilled in holy hymns, bright with the hues of fire, have
   sung them with their lauds to thee.
2He with his might enhanced by Rishis thousand-fold, hath like
   an ocean spread himself. p. 349
  His majesty is praised as true at solemn rites, his power where
   holy singers rule
3May Indra, who in every fight must be invoked, be near to us.
  May the most mighty Vritra-slayer, meet for praise, come to
   libations and to hymns.
4Thou art the best of all in sending bounteous gifts, true art thou,.
   lordly in thine act.
  We claim alliance with the very Glorious One, yea, with the-
   mighty Son of Strength.
