A prayer for children and prosperity

1Sarasvati, in thy decrees, Goddess, in thy celestial laws,
  Accept the offered sacrifice, and, Goddess, grant us progeny.
2Here is, Sarasvati, thy fat libation, this sacrifice passing to the
   mouth of Fathers.
  These most auspicious offerings have ascended to thee: through,
   these may we be full of sweetness.
3Be kind and most auspicious, be gracious to us, Sarasvati, May
   we be ever in thy sight.
