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


1. MAY Sūrya guard us out of heaven, and Vāta from the firmament,
And Agni from terrestrial spots.
2 Thou Savitar whose flame deserves hundred libations, be thou pleased:
From failing lightning keep us safe.
3 May Savitar the God, and may Parvata also give us sight;
May the Creator give us sight.
4 Give sight unto our eye, give thou our bodies sight that they may see:
May we survey, discern this world.
5 Thus, Sūrya, may we look on thee, on thee most lovely to behold,
See clearly with the eyes of men.
