Bengali lyric

তিমির-অবগুণ্ঠনে বদন তব ঢাকি
কে তুমি মম অঙ্গনে দাঁড়ালে একাকী ॥
     আজি সঘন শর্বরী, মেঘমগন তারা,
     নদীর জলে ঝর্ঝরি ঝরিছে জলধারা,
       তমালবন মর্মরি পবন চলে হাঁকি ॥
যে কথা মম অন্তরে আনিছ তুমি টানি
জানি না কোন্ মন্তরে তাহারে দিব বাণী ।
     রয়েছি বাঁধা বন্ধনে, ছিঁড়িব, যাব বাটে—
     যেন এ বৃথা ক্রন্দনে এ নিশি নাহি কাটে ।
       কঠিন বাধা-লঙ্ঘনে দিব না আমি ফাঁকি ॥

English lyric of the song

Timir  aabogunthane  badon tabo dhaki
Ke tumi mamo angone darale akaki.
Aaji saghano sarbori, meghomagon tara,
Nodir jale jarjori jhoriche jalodhara,
Tamal bano marmori pabono chale haki.
Je katha mamo aantare aanicho tumi tani
Jani na kon mantore tahare dibo bani.
Roechi badha  bandhone, chiribo, jabo bate  
Jano e britha krandone e nisi nahi kate.
Kothin badha langhane dibo na aami phaki.

English translation of the song

In that veil of darkness, covering your face
Who are you standing lonely in my courtyard.
This night is deep, stars getting lost in clouds,
Streams flowing with chirpy sound,
The gusty wind storming the woods.
The feelings in my heart that you are bringing in
I don't know how to give them words.
I am surrounded by bindings, which I will break open and leave
As if the night is not ending and my cryings are in vein.
I will make every effort to overcome this difficult barrier.
- Translated by Sumita Chakraborty

Hindi translation of the song

घूंघट ओढ़े रैन का मुख्ड़ा यों छिपाये
कौन हो कौन तुम-मेरे-अंगना, खड़ी हो अकेली ॥
आज सघन रात रे, मेघमगन तारे -
नदिया नीर झर-झर - झरे झरे झरे जलधारा ।
तमाल वन मर्मरित ओहो-ओरे ! पवन चले सनसन ॥
जो बात मन मेरे मरे, तुम हो बुला लाती -
न जानूँ किस पत्र से उन्हें मैं दूं वाणी ।
हूं मैं बंधा बंधन- बंधन में तोड़ु उसे राह चलते मैं -
क्यों आंसू बहे-बहे ये निशा भी न बीते।
लांघू कठिन बाधा मैं  अपने को न ठगूं मैं ॥
- Translated by Jalaj Bhaduri
