HYMN L. Indra.

LET Indra drink, All-hail! for his is Soma.the mighty Bull come, girt by Devas, hither.

Far-reaching, let him fill him with these offerings, and let our offering sate his body's longing.

I yoke thy pair of trusty Steeds for swiftness, whose faithful service from of old thou lovest. Here, fair of cheek! let thy Bay Coursers place thee: drink of this lovely welleffused libation.

With milk they made Indra their good Preserver, lauding for help and rule the bounteous rainer. Impetuous Deva, when thou hast drunk the Soma, enraptured send us cattle in abundance.

With kine and horses satisfy this longing with very splendid bounty still extend it. Seeking the light, with hymns to thee, O Indra, the KuΕ›ikas have brought their gift, the singers.

Call we on Indra, auspicious Indra, best Hero in the fight where spoil is gathered; The Strong, who listens, who gives aid in battles, who subdues the VαΉ›tras, wins and gathers riches.
