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


A prayer for perfect bodily and mental health and vigour

1May I have voice in my mouth, breath in my nostrils, sight in
   mine eyes, hearing in mine ears, hair that hath not turned
   gray, teeth free from yellowness, and much strength in mine
2May I have power in my thighs, swiftness in my legs, stedfast-
   ness in my feet. May all my members be uninjured and my
   soul unimpaired.
