Prayer of Offering and Praise to Agni

Do not hide from us, in water or reed,
fire of offering, High Priest Agni:
be strong on our altar raised to the gods,
you, first of them to receive offering.
Lap with your many tongues this butter poured into you,
this golden butter, clarified, pure,
into your flames, clear and pure.
Grow strong, grow high, fed by wood and butter,
increase in strength through our prayers today,
our words poured out like butter, like sweet butter,
in your praise.
