Áṋdhárer sei hatáshá
Ket́e geche áj
Áloker parasha peye
Kotháy háráye geche marura trśá
Madhurer mohana cháye

Mor gán se to nay cáoyá
Mor hási se ki shudhu páoyá
Ámár sakal calá sab dyotanái
Suśamár saritá beye
Cale áloker nisháná ceye

আঁধারের সেই হতাশা
কেটে গেছে আজ
আলোকের পরশ পেয়ে
কোথায় হারায়ে গেছে মরুর তৃষা
মধুরের মোহন ছায়ে

মোর গান সে তো নয় চাওয়া
মোর হাসি সে কি শুধু পাওয়া
আমার সকল চলা সব দ্যোতনাই
সুষমার সরিতা বেয়ে
চলে আলোকের নিশানা চেয়ে

That selfsame dark despair
Is getting cut away today,
The touch of light having attained.
Where does my desert-thirst go off,
Under the pleasant shade of sweetness?

In my song, there is no prayer;
In my smile, just acquisition.
My every movement, each expression,
Having plied a stream of sweet grace,
Proceeds, gazing at the target of effulgence.


This is how Sarkar himself described the meaning of the song—[4]

The pathos of darkness has been expelled. It has come in contact with the divine light, the divine effulgence. All my pains of this material world have been banished by Your sweet benign touch; thus all darkness has been removed. The thirst of the desert, the drought of the desert, is no more with me; and my mind is now throbbing with divine energy and dancing in divine ecstasy.
