1. THE Child,
when blended with the streams, speeding the plan of sacrifice,
Surpasses all things that are
dear, yea, from of old.
2 The place, near
the two pressing-stones of Trita, hath he occupied,
Secret and dear through seven
lights of sacrifice.
3 Urge to
three courses, on the heights of Trita, riches in a stream.
He who is passing wise measures
his courses out.
4 Even at his
birth the Mothers Seven taught him, for glory, like a sage,
So that he, firm and sure, hath
set his mind on wealth.
5 Under his
sway, of one accord, are all the guileless Deities:
Warriors to be envied, they,
when they are pleased.
6 The Babe
whom they who strengthen Law have generated fair to see,
Much longed for at the
sacrifice, most liberal Sage, -
7 To him,
united, of themselves, come the young Parents of the rite,
When they adorn him, duly
8 With wisdom
and with radiant eyes unbar to us the stall of heaven,
Speeding at solemn rite the
plan of Holy Law.
