Our songs of praise have glorified Indra who ruleth by his might.

Book 1. Hymn 11. ´Indra


1 All sacred songs have magnified Indra expansive as the sea,

The best of warriors borne on cars, the Lord, the very Lord of strength.

2 Strong in thy friendship, Indra, Lord of power and might, we have no fear.

We glorify with praises thee, the never-conquered conqueror.

3 The gifts of Indra from of old, his saving succours, never fail,

When to the praise-singers he gives the boon of substance rich in kine.

4 Crusher of forts, the young, the wise, of strength unmeasured, was he born

Sustainer of each sacred rite, Indra, the Thunderer, much-extolled.

5 Lord of the thunder, thou didst burst the cave of Vala rich in cows.

The Gods came pressing to thy side, and free from terror aided thee,

6 I, Hero, through thy bounties am come to the flood addressing thee.

Song-lover, here the singers stand and testify to thee thereof.

7 The wily Śuṣṇa, Indra! thou o’erthrewest with thy wondrous powers.

The wise beheld this deed of thine: now go beyond their eulogies.

8 Our songs of praise have glorified Indra who ruleth by his might,

Whose precious gifts in thousands come, yea, even more abundantly.
