Bengali lyric

হে ক্ষণিকের অতিথি,
    এলে প্রভাতে কারে চাহিয়া
         ঝরা শেফালির পথ বাহিয়া ॥
কোন্ অমরার বিরহিণীরে    চাহ নি ফিরে,
    কার বিষাদের শিশিরনীরে   এলে নাহিয়া ॥
    ওগো অকরুণ, কী মায়া জানো,
         মিলনছলে বিরহ আনো।
চলেছ পথিক আলোকযানে    আঁধার-পানে
    মনভুলানো মোহনতানে    গান গাহিয়া ॥

English lyric of the song

Hey khoniker atithi
Ala prabhate kare chahiya
Jhara safalir patho bahiya
Kon amarer birohinire chahoni phire
Kar bisader sisironire ala nahiya
Ogo akoruno ki maya jano
Milanochole biraho ano
Chalicho pathi aloko jane adhar pane
Mon bhulano mohano tane gan gahiya

English translation of the song

Oh! Ephemeral visitor
Who do you visit at dawn?
Treading the (fallen) shephali-sprinkled pathway?
To return the glimpses of which spurned princess
Have you arrived, soaked in melancholy dew?
O unfeeling one! How you deceive!
In the guise of union you bring separation
Towards the darkness, you’re cruising along, 
In your chariot of light, O visitor!
Singing a sweet song, enthralling all! 
- Translated by Chaitali Sengupta

O’ visitor of a few moments
You came at dawn asking for whom
Treading on the path of fallen bloom
The forlorn lover of an unknown heaven you looked not back
In whose dew-moist sorrow did you come bathed?
O merciless, what charm do you know
That you bring separation in the ruse of union
Traveler on the chariot of light towards darkness
Singing an enchanting beautiful tune.  
- Translated by Ratna De
