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

p. 347


1Now have we, Indra, Friend of Song, sent our great wishes
   forth to thee.
  Coming like floods that follow floods.
2As rivers swell the ocean, so, Hero, our prayers increase thy
  Though of thyself, O Thunderer, waxing day by day.
3With holy song they bind to the broad wide-yoked car the bay
   steeds of the rapid God,
  Bearers of India, yoked by prayer.
