English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. Pour forth on us abundant wealth, O Pavamana, with thy stream.
Wherewith thou mayest find us light

2 O Indu, swayer of the sea, shaker of all things, flow thou on,
Bearer of wealth to us with might.

3 With thee for Hero, Valiant One! may we subdue our enemies:
Let what is precious flow to us.

4 Indu arouses strength the Sage who strives for victory, winning power,
Discovering holy works and means.

5 Mover of speech, we robe him with our songs as he is purified
Soma, the Guardian of the folk;

6 On whose way, Lord of Holy Law, most richi as he is purified.
The people all have set their hearts.
