Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1 I CRAVE help from the Imperial Lords, from Indra-Varuṇa; may they
Both favour one of us like me.
2 Guardians of men, ye ever come with ready succour at the call
Of every singer such as I.
3 Sate you, according to your wish, O Indra-Varuṇa, with wealth:
Fain would we have you nearest us.
4 May we be sharers of the powers, sharers of the benevolence
Of you who give strength bounteously.
5 Indra and Varuṇa, among givers of thousands, meet for praise,
Are Powers who merit highest laud.
6 Through their protection may we gain great store of wealth, and heap it up
Enough and still to spare, be ours.
7 O Indra-Varuṇa, on you for wealth in many a form I call:
Still keep ye us victorious.
8 O Indra-Varuṇa, through our songs that seek to win you to ourselves,
Give us at once your sheltering help.
9 O Indra-Varuṇa, to you may fair praise which I offer come,
Joint eulogy which ye dignify.
