Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895], at

p. a221


To accompany the three daily libations

1Dear to all men, all-prosperer, all-creating, may Agni, guard us•
   at the morn's libation.
  May he, the brightly pure one, give us riches: may we have life
   enjoying food together.
2At this our second offering may Indra, Maruts, and Visve Devas
   never fail us.
  Still may the favour of the Gods be with us, blest with long life
   and speaking words that please them.
3We pour this third libation of the Sages who fashioned forth
   the cup in proper order.
  Winners of heaven, may they, Sudhanvan's children, lead our
   fair sacrifice to happy fortune.
