To The Unknown God





In the beginning there arose the Golden Child. As soon as born, he alone

was the lord of all that is. He established the earth and this

heaven:--Who is the God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



He who gives breath, he who gives strength, whose command all the bright

gods revere, whose shadow is immortality, whose shadow is death:--Who is

the God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



He who through his might became the sole king of the breathing and

twinkling world, who governs all this, man and beast:--Who is the God to

whom we shall offer sacrifice?



He through whose might these snowy mountains are, and the sea, they say,

with the distant river; he of whom these regions are indeed the two

arms:--Who is the God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



He through whom the awful heaven and the earth were made fast, he

through whom the ether was established, and the firmament; he who

measured the air in the sky:--Who is the God to whom we shall offer

sacrifice?



He to whom heaven and earth, standing firm by his will, look up,

trembling in their mind; he over whom the risen sun shines forth:--Who

is the God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



When the great waters went everywhere, holding the germ, and generating

light, then there arose from them the breath of the gods:--Who is the

God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



He who by his might looked even over the waters which held power and

generated the sacrifice, he who alone is God above all gods:--Who is the

God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



May he not hurt us, he who is the begetter of the earth, or he, the

righteous, who begat the heaven; he who also begat the bright and mighty

waters:--Who is the God to whom we shall offer sacrifice?



Pragapati, no other than thou embraces all these created things. May

that be ours which we desire when sacrificing to thee: may we be lords

of wealth!
