Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Gharer[nb 2] áṋdhár álo kare
Esechile tumi se ráte
Svapnamadir pariveshe
Núpur bájáte bájáte

Ámi chilum ghumer ghore
Andha sama jaŕer bhiŕe
Komal kare sparsha kare
Jágále priitite mátáte

Ámi chilum svárthe gherá
Racechilum páśáńkárá
Se kárá bháuṋgile tumi
Rauṋále natun álote

ঘরের আঁধার আলো করে'
এসেছিলে তুমি সে রাতে
স্বপ্নমদির পরিবেশে
নূপুর বাজাতে বাজাতে

আমি ছিলুম ঘুমের ঘোরে
অন্ধ সম জড়ের ভিড়ে
কোমল করে স্পর্শ করে'
জাগালে প্রীতিতে মাতাতে

আমি ছিলুম স্বার্থে ঘেরা
রচেছিলুম পাষাণকারা
সে কারা ভাঙ্গিলে তুমি
রাঙালে নতুন আলোতে

My room's gloom brightening,
On that night You had appeared
In setting of a heady dream,
Ankle bells to make ring, to make ring.

I had been in slumber deep,
Like one blind, thronged by inert things;
With gentle hand touching me,
Myself You awakened to that love infatuating.

I had been confined by petty self-seeking,
A prison of stone I had been creating;
You shattered that penitentiary;
With light-beams fresh You painted me.
