Where'er let loose in space, the mighty waters Have gone, depositing a fruitful seed And generating fire, there he arose, Who is the breath and life of all the gods, Whose mighty glance looks round the vast expanse Of watery vapour — source of energy, Cause of the sacrifice — the only God Above the gods.
