1. FORWARD with mighty force have flowed the currents of this Steer effused, Of him who sets him by the Gods. 2 The singers praise him with their song, and learned priests adorn the Steed, Brought forth as light that merits laud. 3 These things thou winnest lightly while purified, Soma, Lord of wealth: Fill full the sea that claims our praise. 4 Winning all precious things at once, flow on, O Soma, with thy stream Drive to one place our enemies. 5 Preserve us from the godless, from ill-omened voice of one and all, That so we may be freed from blame. 6 O Indu, as thou flowest on bring us the wealth of earth and heaven, And splendid vigour, in thy stream.
