1. MAY Surya guard us out of heaven, and Vata from the firmament, And Agni from terrestrial spots. 2. Thou Savitar whose flame deserves hundred libations, be thou pleased: From failing lightning keep us safe. 3. May Savitar the God, and may Parvata also give us sight; May the Creator give us sight. 4. Give sight unto our eye, give thou our bodies sight that they may see: May we survey, discern this world. 5. Thus, Surya, may we look on thee, on thee most lovely to behold, See clearly with the eyes of men.
