' SOMA ! THE CREATOR GOD, HUMAN SOUL
AND HERBAL JUICE '
Thou art the Creator, O Soma Lord
Of this manifest, non-manifest world.
Thou art Protector, our Kind, O God,
Bestower to us, our joyous world.
Destroyer of all, that is bad and evil,
Giver of all, that is good and civil.
Motivate our souls to soar so high,
Endowed with virtues, touching the sky.
Make our bodies, so fit and fine
O medicinal juice of herbs divine.
Killing all germs, generating decay,
To make our lives swing, hilarious sway.
Wondrous is thy magic, O Soma.
