1. VASU, thou most youthful God, Bhārata, Agni, bring us wealth, Excellent, splendid, much-desired. 2 Let no malignity prevail against us, either God's or man's. Save us from this and enmity. 3 So through thy favour may we force through all our enemies a way, As ’twere through streaming water-floods. 4 Thou, Purifier Agni, high shinest forth, bright, adorable, When worshipped with the sacred oil. 5 Ours art thou, Agni, Bhārata, honoured by us with barren cows, With bullocks and with kine in calf 6 Wood-fed, bedewed with sacred oil, ancient, Invoker, excellent, The Son of Strength, the Wonderful.
