E gán ámár álor jharańádhárá
Upala pathe dine ráte
Bahe jái
Bahe jái báṋdhanahárá
Álor jharańádhárá

E path ámár bandhura kańt́akabhará
Utsa hate práńera srote
Bheuṋge jái
Bheuṋge jái páśáńakárá
Álor jharańádhárá

এ গান আমার আলোর ঝরণাধারা
উপল-পথে দিনে রাতে
বহে যাই
বহে যাই বাঁধনহারা
আলোর ঝরণাধারা

এ পথ আমার বন্ধুর কন্টকভরা
উৎস হ'তে প্রাণের স্রোতে
ভেঙ্গে যাই
ভেঙ্গে যাই পাষাণকারা
আলোর ঝরণাধারা

This is my song, a cascade of light.
On a rocky road, by day and by night,
I carry on...
I carry on without obstruction,
A cascade of light.

This is my path, rugged and full of thorns.
From the Source on my life-stream,
I keep breaching...
I keep breaching stone-prisons,
A cascade of light.


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

For those who move along the path of greatness and magnanimity, so much meanness and littleness stand as insurmountable obstacles. They know this and their song is like a fountain of divine effulgence it is not a materialistic song. Their song does not move along a smooth road. In their path there are so many thorns, so many ups and downs just like a fountain which flows along various rapids and finally merges into the sea. They recognize no barrier, saying "We move on and on, with all our innate vitality, ever breaking all the iron prison walls around us."
