HYMN L. Devas.

LET every mortal man elect the friendship of the guiding Deva.

Each one solicits him for wealth and seeks renown to prosper him.

These, leading Deva, are thine, and these here ready to speak after us. As suc. May we attain to wealth and wait with services on thee.

So further honour as our guests the Hero Devas and then the Dames. May he remove and keep afar our foes and all who block our path.

Where fire is set, and swiftly runs the victim dwelling in the trough. He wins, with heroes in his home, friendly to man, like constant streams.

May these thy riches, Leader Deva! that rule the car, be blest to us, Yea, blest to us for wealth and weal. This will we ponder praising strength, this ponder as we praise the Deva.
