Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration, Word-for-word and English translation of verse 1.7.5:

संस्तभ्य यत्नाद् आत्मानं स्वास्थ्यं जनयितुं प्रभोः ।
उपायं चिन्तयामास प्राप चानन्तरं हृदि ॥ ५ ॥

saṃstabhya yatnād ātmānaṃ svāsthyaṃ janayituṃ prabhoḥ |
upāyaṃ cintayāmāsa prāpa cānantaraṃ hṛdi || 5 ||

Śrī Brahmā, composing himself with some effort, began to think of a way to restore his Lord and master’s health and almost at once decided upon a means.
