Bengali lyric

আলো আমার, আলো ওগো, আলো ভুবন-ভরা ।
আলো নয়ন-ধোওয়া আমার, আলো হৃদয়-হরা ॥
        নাচে আলো নাচে, ও ভাই,    আমার প্রাণের কাছে—
        বাজে আলো বাজে, ও ভাই,    হৃদয়বীণার মাঝে—
        জাগে আকাশ, ছোটে বাতাস, হাসে সকল ধরা ॥
আলোর স্রোতে পাল তুলেছে হাজার প্রজাপতি ।
আলোর ঢেউয়ে উঠল নেচে মল্লিকা মালতী ।
        মেঘে মেঘে সোনা, ও ভাই,    যায় না মানিক গোনা—
        পাতায় পাতায় হাসি, ও ভাই,    পুলক রাশি রাশি—
        সুরনদীর কূল ডুবেছে সুধা-নিঝর-ঝরা ॥

English lyric of the song

Aalo aamar,aalo ogo, aalo bhuban-bhara,
Aalo nayan-dhoya aamar, aalo hriday hara.
Nache aalo naache o bhai, aamar praner kache.
Baaje aalo baaje o bhai, hridraybeenar majhe-
Jaage aakash, chote batash,hase sakol dhara.
Aalor srote paal tuleche hajaar prajapati.
Aallor dheuye uthlo mete mallika maloti.
Meghe meghe soma o bhai, jai na manik gona.
Patai patai hasi o bhai, pulak rashi rashi-
Sur-nadeer kul dubeche sudha-nijhar-jhara,

English translation of the song

Light, my light, the world-filling light, the eye-kissing light, heart-sweetening light!
Ah, the light dances, my darling, at the centre of my life; the light strikes, my darling, the chords of my love;
the sky opens, the wind runs wild, laughter passes over the earth.
The butterflies spread their sails on the sea of light. Lilies and jasmines surge up on the crest
of the waves of light. 
The light is shattered into gold on every cloud, my darling, and it scatters gems in profusion.
Mirth spreads from leaf to leaf, my darling, and gladness without measure. The heaven's river has drowned
its banks and the flood of joy is abroad.
- Translated by Rabindranath Tagore

Light, Oh Light! 
The world is vivid with light 
Light has opened my eyes, - taken over my heart
Light dances in my heart, - plays my heart’s harp.
As the sky wakes up, the wind is let loose; the earth smiles 
Thousand butterflies spread their wings in the stream of light 
Showy Jasmines flutter in gaiety in the wave of light.
As the light breaks through countless golden clouds
Laughter flows from leaf to leaf with great euphoria 
The river of tune is overflowing 
Sweet joy has gone overboard! 
- Translated by Rabiul Zaki

Hindi translation of the song

आलोक तू है आलोक मेरा, आलोक भरे भुवन ।
आलोक छाये नैन मेरा करे हृदय हरण ॥
नाचे आलोक नाचे ओ-भाइ घेरे प्राण मेरे
गर्जे आलोक बरजे ओ-भाइ मन-वीणा झंकारे
जागे आकाश धाय बातास हँसे धरा जीवन ॥
आलोक धारा की पतवार ऐसी हजारों तितलियाँ ।
नाचे आलोक लहरों पर मालती-मल्लिका ।
मेघ से सोना सोना बरसे रे भाइ मणि अनगिने
पात पात हंसे रे भाइ खुशी अझर झरे
तीर डूबे, सुरसरी के निर्झर हुधातरंग ॥
- Translated by Jalaj Bhaduri
