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


Praise of Vishnu and Varuna

1The early morning prayer hath come to Vishnu and Varuna,
  Lords through might, whom none hath equalled,
  Gods by whose power the realms of air were stablished, strongest
   and most heroic in their vigour.
2The early prayer hath ever come to Vishnu and Varuna by that
  God's high power and statute.
  In whose control is all this world that shineth, all that hath
   powers to see and all that breatheth.
