As a good cow to him who milks, we call the doer of fair deeds,
assistance day by day.
Come thou to our libations, drink of Soma; Soma-drinker thou!
One's rapture giveth kine.
So may we be acquainted with thine innermost benevolence:
not, come hitherward.
Go to the wise unconquered One, ask thou of Indra, skilled in song,
Him who is
better than thy friends.
Whether the men who mock us say, Depart unto another place,
serve Indra and none else;
Or whether, God of wondrous deeds, all our true people call us blest,
we dwell in Indra's care.
Unto the swift One bring the swift, man-cheering, grace of sacrifice,
That to the
Friend gives wings and joy.
Thou, Satakratu, drankest this and wast the Vrtras' slayer; thou
warrior in the fray.
We strengthen, Satakratu, thee, yea, thee the powerful in fight,
Indra, we may win us wealth.
To him the mighty stream of wealth, prompt friend ot'him who pours the juice,
this Indra sing your song.
