Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. CHASING with light our sin away, O Agni, shine thou wealth on us.
May his light chase our sin away.

2 For goodly fields, for pleasant homes, for wealth we sacrifice to thee.
May his light chase our sin away.

3 Best praiser of all these be he; foremost, our chiefs who sacrifice.
May his light chase our sin away.

4 So that thy worshippers and we, thine, Agni, in our sons may live.
May his light chase our sin away.

5 As ever-conquering Agni’s beams of splendour go to every side,
May his light chase our sin away.

6 To every side thy face is turned, thou art triumphant everywhere.
May his light chase our sin away.

7 O thou whose face looks every way, bear us past foes as in a ship.
May his light chase our sin away.

8 As in a ship, convey thou us for our advantage o’er the flood.
May his light chase our sin away.
