Transliteration in English

Ekbar tora ma boliyaa daak, jagotjoner shrabon jurak,
Himadripashan kende gelo jak - mukh tule aaji chahore.
Dara dekhi tora atmapor bhuli, hridoye hridoye chutuk bijule-
Probhatgone koti shir tuli nirbhoye aji gaho re.
Bish koti konthe ma bole dakile romancho uthibe anonto nikhile,
Bish kote chele mayere gherile dosh dik sukhe hashibe.
Sedin probhate notun tapon notun jibon korebe bopon
e nohe kahini, a nohe sopon - asibe se din asibe.
Aponer maye ma bole dakile, aponar bhaye hridoye rakhile,
Sob paap taap dure jaay chole punno premer batase.
Setha biraje deb- asribad- na thake kaloho, na thake bishad-
Ghuche apoman, jege othe pran - bimol protibha bikashe.
