Mandala 4 – Hymn 48 [Rig Veda]

1. TASTE offerings never tasted yet, as bards enjoy the foeman’s wealth. O Vayu, on refulgent car come to the drinking of the juice. 2. Removing curses, drawn by teams, with 1ndra, seated by thy side, O Vayu, on refulgent car come to the drinking of the juice. 3. The two dark treasuries of wealth that wear all beauties wait on thee. O Vayu, on refulgent car come to the drinking of the juice. 4. May nine-and-ninety harnessed steeds who yoke them at thy will bring thee. O Vayu, on refulgent car come to the drinking of the juice. 5. Harness, O Vayu, to thy car a hundred well-fed tawny steeds, Yea, or a thousand steeds, and let thy chariot come to us with might.
