Notes: A Marathi composition was taken for this song in 1895. This song is included in seasons song( Ritu Sangeet) but remodelled as "Bishwa- Rajalay Bishwabimna Bajiche..."

The poet had raised doubt in a letter written to Indira Debi on 26th November1917 on the tune for this song that was being taught by Dinendranath Tagore -

... Dinu has prepared a swaralipi of this song in the same structure that he follows while teaching students here. Vidyapati of Mithila had to withstand a lot of pain due to adaptations of his original structuring after being introduced in Bengal and we all have taken this structure as granted. Restructuring of these exotic tunes too are inevitable - and there is no harm in that. I have decided to acquit him with this logic in the mind. ...

In another letter to her in a few days time he writes -

... The undisputable logic you have thrown in support of your objection against the deformation of the song 'Bishwabinarobe bishwajon ...' has hit me hard and in fact pierced right through my earlier comment on the subject. It has been only a month or so after listening to my songs from someone else; the suffering is not yet over, your prick in the same spot has rendered me frail.

The reality is, ignorance on one side and laze on the other. My knowledge is poor, whether it is my own tune or others'. Manipulation is evident whenever it required for application. ... Hence I was in praise despite wrong teaching of this song by Dinu. It would invite controversy if I had raised my voice against. You might curse me - It's your song, let people do them as they might wish! That will not be of any harm to me - it is a divine curse already bestowed on me.

The exact tune of this song must have been known by Indira Debi as it was derived from a song 'Nadavidya parabrahmarasa jan re ...' in fact, collected by her.

Transliteration in English

Biswabinarobe biswajon mohiche.
Sthale jale nabhotale bone upobone
Nodinade giriguha parabare
Nitto jage saros sangitmadhurima,
Nitto nrittorasobhangima 

Naba basante naba aanando, utsab naba.
Oti manjul, oti manjul, suni manjul gunjan kunje  
Suni re suni marmar pallabpunje,
Pickujan puspobane bijane,
Mridu baiuhilolbilol bibhol bisal sarobar majhe
Kalogit sulalit baje.
Samol kantar  pare anil sanchare dhire re,
Naditire sarobane uthe dhoni sarosaro maromaro.
Kato dike kato bani, nabo babo kato bhasa, jharojharo rasodhara.

Aasare nabo aanando, utsab nabo.
Oti gambhir, oti gombhir nil ambare dambaru baje,
Jeno re proloyongkori sankari nache.
Kare garjan nirjharini saghane,
Here khubdho bhoyal bisal niral pialtamalbitane
Uthe rab bhoirabtane.
Paban mallargit gahiche aadhar rate,
Unmadini soudamini rangobhore nrito kare ambartale.
Dike dike kato bani, naba naba kata bhasa, jharojharo rasodhara.

Aashhine naba aanando, utsabe naba.
Oti nirmal, oti nirmal, oti nirmal ujjal saje
Bhubane naba saradlakhhi biraje.
Naba indulekha aloke jhaloke
Oti nirmal hasbibhasbikas aakasnilambuj majhe
Swet bhuje swet bina baje  
Uthiche aalap mridu madhur behagtane,
Chandrakare ullasito phullobane jhillirabe tandra aane re.
Dike dike kato bani, nabo nabo kato bhasa, jharojharo rasadhara.
