Mandala 5 – Hymn 22 [Rig Veda]

1. LIKE Atri, Visvasaman! sing to him of purifying light, Who must be praised in holy rites, the Priest most welcome in the house. 2. Set Jatavedas in his place, Agni the God and Minister. Let sacrifice proceed to-day duly, comprising all the Gods. 3. All mortals come to thee for aid, the God of most observant mind. Of thine excelling favour we bethink us as we long for it. 4. Mark with attention this our speech, O Agni, thou victorious One. Thee, Strong-jawed! as the homestead’s Lord, the Atris with their lauds exalt, the Atris beautify with songs.
