English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. THE Very Active hath assailed, while purified, all enemies:
They deck the Sage with holy songs.

2 The Red hath mounted to his place; to India, goes the mighty juice:
He settles in his firm abode.

3 O Indu, Soma, send us now great opulence from every side, Pour on us treasures thousandfold.

4 O Soma Pavamana, bring, Indu, all splcndours hitherward:
Find for us food in boundless store.

5 As thou art cleansed, bring hero strength and riches to thy worshipper,
And prosper thou the singer’s hymns.

6 O Indu, Soma, being cleansed, bring hither riches doublypiled,
Wealth, mighty Indu, meet for lauds.
