Mandala 10 – Hymn 156 [Rig Veda]

1. LET songs of ours speed Agni forth like a fleet courser in the race, And we will win each prize through him. 2. Agni the dart whereby we gain kine for ourselves with help from thee,- That send us for the gain of wealth. 3. O Agni, bring us wealth secure, vast wealth in horses and in kine: Oil thou the socket, turn the wheel. 4. O Agni, thou hast made the Sun, Eternal Star, to mount the sky, Bestowing light on living men. 5. Thou, Agni, art the people’s light, best, dearest, seated in thy shrine: Watch for the singer, give him life.
