Borvo of the healing spring, Borvo of the river
and the well, all through the broad lands of old Gaul
were you well known, well honored by those in need;
many were the offerings made to you by the hopeful
and the thankful, many the blessings received
by those who placed their faith in you, O god
of remedy and relief. Borvo who soothes all hurts,
Borvo of the roiling waters, the frothy waves
that surge and whirl, the seething pools that ease our pains,
consort to Damona of the great kind eyes,
Borvo who dwelt in many places, who answered
to many names, I pray to you, I praise your might!
