Aami jakhon chhilem andho
  Sukher khelaay bela gachhe paai ni to aanando.
Khelagharer deyaal gnethe kheyal niye chhilem mete,
  Bhit bhenge jei ele ghore ghuchlo aamar bandho.
   Sukher khela  aar roche na peyechhi anando.
Bhishan aamar, rudro aamar, nidra gelo khudro aamar -
  Ugro byathaay nutan kore bnaadhle aamar chhando.
   Je din tumi ognibeshe sob kichu mor nile ese
   Se din aami purno holem ghuchlo aamar dondo.
    Dukkhosukher paare tomaay peyechhi anando.
