Shree YamunAcharya, "Stotra-Ratnam", Verse 41:

दासः सखा वाहनमासनं ध्वजः यस्ते वितानं व्यजनं त्रयीमयः । 
उपस्थितं तेन पुरो गरुत्मता त्वदङ्घ्रिसंमर्दकिणाङ्कशोभिना । । ४१ । ।

upasthitaM tena puro garutmatA tvada~NghrisaMmardakiNA~NkashobhinA | | 41 | | 

Translation: "You having Garuda as Your servant, Your friend, Your vehicle, Your seat, Your banner, Your canopy to protect You from the rain and the sun, who is shining as a result of the scars received from the contact with Your feet, whose form is made up of the Vedas (when will I be able to serve You and be blessed?)".
