Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith,  1. WONDERFUL let your coming be, wondrous with help, ye Bounteous Ones, Maruts, who gleam as serpents gleam. 2 Far be from us, O Maruts, ye free givers, your impetuous shaft; Far from us be the stone ye hurl. 3 O Bounteous Givers, touch ye not, O Maruts, Tṛṇskanda's folk; Lift ye us up that we may live.
