1 I CRAVE help from the Imperial Lords, from Indra-Varuṇa; may they Both favour one of us like me. 2 Guardians of men, ye ever come with ready succour at the call Of every singer such as I. 3 Sate you, according to your wish, O Indra-Varuṇa, with wealth: Fain would we have you nearest us. 4 May we be sharers of the powers, sharers of the benevolence Of you who give strength bounteously. 5 Indra and Varuṇa, among givers of thousands, meet for praise, Are Powers who merit highest laud. 6 Through their protection may we gain great store of wealth, and heap it up Enough and still to spare, be ours. 7 O Indra-Varuṇa, on you for wealth in many a form I call: Still keep ye us victorious. 8 O Indra-Varuṇa, through our songs that seek to win you to ourselves, Give us at once your sheltering help. 9 O Indra-Varuṇa, to you may fair praise which I offer come, Joint eulogy which ye dignify.
