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

p. 358


1This is the Godhead, this the might of Sūrya: he hath with-
   drawn what spread o'er work unfinished.
  When he hath loosed his horses from their station, straight over
   all night spreadeth out her garment.
2In the sky's lap the Sun this form assumeth for Mitra and for
  Vāruna to look on.
  His bay steeds well maintain his power eternal, at one time
   bright and darksome at another.
