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

p. 289


1Thou, comprehending with thy might the earth and heaven,
   acceptest the dear hymn for ever new and new.
  O Asura, disclose thou and make visible the Cow's beloved
   home to the bright golden Sun.
2O Indra, let the eager wishes of the folk bring thee the golden-
   jawed, delightful, on thy car.
  That, pleased with sacrifice wherein ten fingers toil, thou mayest
   at the feast drink of our offered mead.
3Juices aforetime, Lord of Bays, thou drankest, and thine, and
   only thine, is this libation.
  Gladden thee, Indra, with the mead-rich Soma: pour it down
   ever, Mighty One, within thee.
