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


A hymn to the Asvins

1To help and favour Vatsa now, O Asvins, come ye hitherward.
  Bestow on him a dwelling spacious and secure, and keep malig-
   nites afar.
2All manliness that is in heaven, with the Five Tribes, or in mid-
  Bestow, ye Asvins, upon us.
3Remember Kārnva first of all among the singers,, Asvins, who
  Have thought upon your wondrous deeds.
4Asvins, for you with song of praise this hot oblation is effused,
  This your sweet Soma juice, ye Lords of wealth and spoil,
   through which ye think upon the foe.
5Whatever ye have done in floods, in the tree, Wonder-workers,
   and in growing plants,
  Therewith, O Asvins, succour me.
