Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1896], at


1. LET songs of ours speed Agni forth like a fleet courser in the race,
And we will win each prize through him.
2 Agni the dart whereby we gain kine for ourselves with help from thee,—
That send us for the gain of wealth.
3 O Agni, bring us wealth secure, vast wealth in horses and in kine:
Oil thou the socket, turn the wheel.
4 O Agni, thou hast made the Sun, Eternal Star, to mount the sky,
Bestowing light on living men.
5 Thou, Agni, art the people's light, best, dearest, seated in thy shrine:
Watch for the singer, give him life.
