Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1The Waters be to us for drink, Goddesses, for our aid and
bliss: p. a7
Let them stream health and wealth to us.
2Within the Waters—Soma thus hath told me—dwell all balms
And Agni, he who blesseth all.
3O Waters, teem with medicine to keep my body safe from harm,
So that I long may see the Sun.
4The Waters bless us, all that rise in desert lands or marshy
Bless us the Waters dug from earth, bless us the Waters brought
in jars, bless us the Waters of the Rains!
