Mandala 1 – Hymn 19 [Rig Veda]

1. To this fair sacrifice to drink the milky draught thou art invoked: O Agni, with the Maruts come. 2. No mortal man, no God exceeds thy mental power, O Mighty one: O Agni, with the Maruts come: 3. All Gods devoid of guile, who know the mighty region of mid-air: O Agni, with those Maruts come. 4. The terrible, who sing their song, not to be overcome by might: O Agni, with those Maruts come. 5. Brilliant, and awful in their form, mighty, devourers of their foes’: O Agni, with those Maruts come. 6. Who sit as Deities in heaven, above the sky-vault’s luminous sphere: O Agni, with those Maruts come. 7. Who scatter clouds about the sky, away over the billowy sea: O Agni, with those Maruts come. 8. Who with their bright beams spread them forth over the ocean in their might O Agni, with those Maruts come. 9. For thee, to be thine early draught, I pour the Soma-mingled meath: O Agni, with the Maruts come.
