Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith,  1. WINNER of thousands, kindled, thou shinest a God with Gods to-day. Bear out oblations, envoy, Sage. 2 Child of Thyself the sacrifice is for the righteous blent with meath, Presenting viands thousandfold. 3 Invoked and worthy of our praise bring Gods whose due is sacrifice: Thou, Agni, givest countless gifts. 4 To seat a thousand Heroes they eastward have strewn the grass with might, Whereon, Ādityas, ye shine forth. 5 The sovran all-imperial Doors, wide, good, many and manifold, Have poured their streams of holy oil. 6 With gay adornment, fair to see, in glorious beauty shine they forth: Let Night and Morning rest them here. 7 Let these two Sages first of all, heralds divine and eloquent, Perform for us this sacrifice. 8 You I address, Sarasvatī, and Bhāratī, and Iḷā, all: Urge ye us on to glorious fame. 9 Tvaṣṭar the Lord hath made all forms and all the cattle of the field Cause them to multiply for us. 10 Send to the Gods, Vanaspati, thyself, the sacrificial draught: Let Agni make the oblations sweet. 11 Agni, preceder of the Gods, is honoured with the sacred song: He glows at offerings blest with Hail!
