Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Ye, Waters, truly bring us bliss: so help ye us to strength and
power p. a6
That we may look on great delight.
2Here grant to us a share of dew, that most auspicious dew of
Like mothers in their longing love.
3For you we fain would go to him to whose abode ye send us
And, Waters, give us procreant strength.
4I pray the Floods to send us balm, those who bear rule o'er
And have supreme control of men.
