A prayer for wealth and birth of a son

1Oft in this sacrifice with favoured cry I call Kuhū, beneficent
  Goddess, skilled in all her works.
  May she vouchsafe us wealth with every boon, and give a, hero
   meet for praise who gives a hundred gifts.
2Kuhl), the Queen of Gods and immortality, called to assist,
   enjoy this sacrifice of' ours!
  Let her, desirous of our worship, hear to-day: may she,
   intelligent, give increase of our wealth.
