Gharer áṋdhár pradiip jvele
Dúr karite pári (ámi)
Maner áṋdhár dúr karite
Kichute je nári

Báhire je amánishá
Tárár hási táteo meshá
Maner áṋdhár kśudratáte
Áro kálo kari

Maner májhe sauṋgopane
Bháver ghrter pradiip ene
Rúpsáyarer úrmimáláy
Cidákáshe dhari
Prati pale tomáy smari

ঘরের আঁধার প্রদীপ জ্বেলে’
দূর করিতে পারি (আমি)
মনের আঁধার দূর করিতে
কিছুতে যে নারি

বাহিরে যে অমানিশা
তারার হাসি তাতেও মেশা
মনের আঁধার ক্ষুদ্রতাতে
আরও কালো করি’

মনের মাঝে সঙ্গোপনে
ভাবের ঘৃতের প্রদীপ এনে’
রূপসায়রের ঊর্মিমালায়
চিদাকাশে ধরি’
প্রতি পলে তোমায় স্মরি

Having lit a lamp, home's darkness,
I am able to dispel it.
But mind's darkness to banish,
By no means can I accomplish.

Outside, oh what dark-moon night,
But joined with it are star-smiles.
Due to stinginess the mind's darkness
Is only made still darker.

At the core of mind in utter privacy,
Having retrieved thought's lamp of ghee
From tiers of waves in form's sea,
Impinging on the sky of psyche,
Every instant I remember Thee.
