English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. FORWARD with mighty force have flowed the currents of this Steer effused,
Of him who sets him by the Gods.

2 The singers praise him with their song, and learned priests adorn the Steed,
Brought forth as light that merits laud.

3 These things thou winnest lightly while purified, Soma, Lord of wealth:
Fill full the sea that claims our praise.

4 Winning all precious things at once, flow on, O Soma, with thy stream
Drive to one place our enemies.

5 Preserve us from the godless, from ill-omened voice of one and all,
That so we may be freed from blame.

6 O Indu, as thou flowest on bring us the wealth of earth and heaven,
And splendid vigour, in thy stream.
