English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. LIKE waves of waters, skilled in song the juices of the Soma speed
Onward, as buffaloes to woods.

2 With stream of sacrifice the brown bright drops have flowed with strength in store
Of kine into the wooden vats.

3 To Indra, Vāyu, Varuṇa, to Viṣṇu, and the Maruts, flow
The drops of Soma juice effused.

4 Three several words are uttered: kine are ]owing, cows who give their milk:
The Tawny-hued goes bellowing on.

5 The young and sacred mothers of the holy rite have uttered praise:
They decorate the Child of Heaven.

6 From every side, O Soma, for our profit, pour thou forth four seas
Filled full of riches thousandfold.
