Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Bandhu tomár kat́horatáy
Bhay pábo ná kona kichutei
Áloker yátrápathe
Tomáy ceye ámi calibai

Je bá tomáy bale kat́hor
Se bojhe ná tomár kadar
Tomár ei kat́horatá
Komalatáke d́heke rákhitei

Je bá tomáy bale niśt́hur
Se theke jáy tomá theke dúr
Káche ele bujhbe se jan
Sujan tomár mata keha nei

বন্ধু তোমার কঠোরতায়
ভয় পাবো না কোন কিছুতেই
আলোকের যাত্রাপথে
তোমায় চেয়ে আমি চলিবই

যে বা তোমায় বলে কঠোর
সে বোঝে না তোমার কদর
তোমার এই কঠোরতা
কোমলতাকে ডেকে রাখিতেই

যে বা তোমায় বলে নিষ্ঠুর
সে থেকে যায় তোমা থেকে দূর
কাছে এলে বুঝবে সে জন
সুজন তোমার মত কেহ নেই

Abiding friend, from Your severity
I will not get afraid, no, not a bit.
On my journey along light's path,
Gazing at You, I will proceed.

Those who say You are harsh,
They do not grasp Your deep concern.
Your severity, it is only
A veil to preserve tenderness.

Those who say You are merciless,
They go far away from Thee.
Coming close, they would realize
There is none else so goodhearted.
