4. He intones,—“Successful this has turned out, O heaven and earth—,” for successful indeed it has turned out, when one has completed the sacrifice.—“We have completed the song of praise, and the utterance of worship,” for indeed these two, the singing of praises and the utterance of worship, form the sacrifice: and accordingly he thereby says, “We have accomplished the sacrifice, we have obtained possession of the sacrifice.”—“Thou, O Agni, art the voice of praise at the listening of heaven and earth,” he thereby says to Agni, “Thou art the voice of praise, while heaven and earth listen.”—“May heaven and earth be propitious to thee, O sacrificer, at this sacrifice!” whereby he says, “May heaven and earth abound in food for thee, O sacrificer, at this sacrifice.”
