WITH reverence and with offered gifts serve we the Deva whose flame is bright: Let us bring Jātavedas fuel, and adore Agni when we invoke the Devas.

Agni. May we perform thy rites with fuel, and honour thee, O Holy one, with praises: Honour thee, Monk of offering! with butter, thee, Deva of blessed light! with our oblation.

Come, Agni, with the Devas to our invoking, come, pleased, to offerings sanctified with Vaṣaṭ.

May we be his who pays thee, Deva, due honour. Ye Devas, preserve us evermore with blessings.
