Rig Veda 1.174

Water gives food, food gives strength, strength gives victory. Give us rain, Indra, and protect us. Rain falls with your own victory, because of your strength - the rain falls upon our fields, swelling our rivers - without destroying our cities or fortresses. Your water guards the sacrificial fire, permitting us to enjoy its light and heat within our fields and homes without fear. Maghavan, you are the giver of Heroes, giver of wealth, the giver of victory when you give us food. Protect and preserve us, save us.
