HYMN XLVI. Soma. Indra-Soma

DRINK the best draught of Soma-juice, O Soma, at our holy rites: For thou art he who drinketh first.

Come, team-drawn, with thy hundred helps, with Indra, seated in the car, Soma, and drink your fill of juice.

May steeds a thousand bring you both, Indra. and Soma, hitherward Soma, to the feast.

For ye, O Indra and Soma, mount the golden-seated car that aids The offering, that reaches Heaven.

On far-refulgent chariot come unto the man who offers gifts: Come, Indra and Soma, hitherward.

Here, Indra and Soma, is the juice: drink it, accordant with the Devas, within the giver's dwelling-place.

Hither, O Indra and Soma, be your journey here unyoke your steeds. Here for your draught of Soma juice.
