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


A charm for some physical disorder

1Whatever trouble hath disturbed and shaken me—I speak with
   hope, I move, imploring, 'mid the folk
  What harm my body in myself hath suffered, now let Sarasvati
   relieve with fatness.
2Seven flow for him, the youth on whom the Maruts wait: the
   sons have taught the Father everlasting laws.
  Both worlds are his: both shine belonging unto him. Both
   move together: both, as his possession thrive.
