Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tava ásá pathe kán pete pete
Jege áchi juga dhare
Tomár deoyá málár
Tomár deoyá málár d́or áche tár
Phulguli sab geche jhare

Din áse jáy
Din áse jáy kálera kheláy
Rátri ghanáy áṋdhára máyáy
Ámi je sadái
Ámi je sadái cáripáshe cái
Pal guńe guńe prati prahare

Kán pete thákár
Kán pete thákár pal gońár vyathár
Sheś habe kabe balo go more

তব আসা-পথে কান পেতে পেতে
জেগে আছি যুগ ধরে
তোমার দেওয়া মালার
তোমার দেওয়া মালার ডোর আছে তার
ফুলগুলি সব গেছে ঝরে

দিন আসে যায়
দিন আসে যায় কালের খেলায়
রাত্রি ঘনায় আঁধার মায়ায়
আমি যে সদাই
আমি যে সদাই চারিপাশে চাই
পল গুণে গুণে প্রতি প্রহরে

কান পেতে থাকার
কান পেতে থাকার পল গোণার ব্যথার
শেষ হবে কবে বলো গো মোরে

With an ear to the path of Your arrival,
I have kept alert age after age.
Of the garland You gave me—
Of the garland You gave me, only thread remains;
All the flowers have fallen away.

Days come and go—
Days come and go in the game of time;
And, by a dark magic, denser the nights grow.
Yet, ever and always do I—
Ever and always do I gaze all around,
Counting the minutes of each passing hour.[nb 2]

Of this attentive waiting—
Of this attentive waiting and arduous minute counting,
Lord, please tell me when will there be an end.
