Book The First

HYMN I. Agni.

1 I Laud Agni, the chosen Priest, God, minister of sacrifice,

The hotar, lavishest of wealth.

2 Worthy is Agni to be praised by living as by ancient seers.

He shall bring. hitherward the Gods.

3 Through Agni man obtaineth wealth, yea, plenty waxing day by day,

Most rich in heroes, glorious.

4 Agni, the perfect sacrifice which thou encompassest about

Verily goeth to the Gods.

5 May Agni, sapient-minded Priest, truthful, most gloriously great,

The God, come hither with the Gods.

6 Whatever blessing, Agni, thou wilt grant unto thy worshipper,

That, Angiras, is indeed thy truth.

7 To thee, dispeller of the night, O Agni, day by day with prayer

Bringing thee reverence, we come

8 Ruler of sacrifices, guard of Law eternal, radiant One,

Increasing in thine own abode.

9 Be to us easy of approach, even as a father to his son:

Agni, be with us for our weal.
