Be holy still, till East to West has run,
And till no sacrificial suffering

Over the newly dead.

Give me the soul he does not need
Now, for conception sweet.
Hear, or my lord and husband
Shall send me from his door
And take to his side a fairer bride
Whose breast shall be less poor.

Oft I have sought thy temples,
By Ganges now I seek,
Where ashes of all the dead are strewn,
And is my prayer not meek?

That bathe in the holy Stream
Have heard my cry, O goddess high,
