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

p. 352


1O Indra, bring great strength to us, bring valour, Satakratu, thou
   most active, bring.
  A hero conquering in war.
2For, gracious Satakratu, thou hast ever been a mother and a
   sire to us,
  So now for bliss we pray to thee.
3To thee, Strong, Much-invoked who showest forth thy strength,
  O Satakratu, do I speak:
  So grant thou us heroic might.
