Mandala 5 – Hymn 26 [Rig Veda]

1. O AGNI, Holy and Divine, with splendour and thy pleasant tongue Bring hither and adore the Gods. 2. We pray thee, thou who droppest oil, bright-rayed! who lookest on the Sun, Bring the Gods hither to the feast. 3. We have enkindled thee, O Sage, bright caller of the Gods to feast. O Agni, great in Sacrifice. 4. O Agni, come with all the Gods, come to our sacrificial gift: We choose thee as Invoking Priest. 5. Bring, Agni, to the worshipper who pours the juice, heroic strength: Sit with the Gods upon the grass. 6. Victor of thousands, Agni, thou, enkindled, cherishest the laws, Laud-worthy, envoy of the Gods. 7. Set Agni Jatavedas down, the bearer of our sacred gifts, MostYouthful, God and Minister. 8. Duly proceed our sacrifice, comprising all the Gods, to-day: Strew holy grass to be their seat. 9. So may the Maruts sit thereon, the Asvins, Mitra, Varuna: The Gods with all their company.
