Tomare shonate is the 2231st song of Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar's Prabhat Samgiita.[1][2]


Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tomáre shonáte
Gán geye gechi jiivana bhare
Jiivana bhare
Shono ki shono ná máni ná[nb 2]
Tabu gái tomári tare

Eso mor mana nilaye
Tháko udbhásita vijaye
Thákibo tomár sane nirbhaye
E vinati carańa pare

Hena sthán nái jethá tumi nái
Hena bháv nái jethá tomáre ná pái
Tabu bali eso baso man máne ná
Cáoyá áṋkhite jhare

তোমারে শোনাতে
গান গেয়ে গেছি জীবন ভরে’
জীবন ভরে’
শোন কি শোন না মানি না
তবু গাই তোমারই তরে

এসো মোর মন-নিলয়ে
থাকো উদ্ভাসিত বিজয়ে
থাকিব তোমার সনে নির্ভয়ে
এ বিনতি চরণ পরে

হেন স্থান নাই যেথা তুমি নাই
হেন ভাব নাই যেথা তোমারে না পাই
তবু বলি এসো বসো মন মানে না
চাওয়া আঁখিতে ঝরে

That it may be heard by Thee,
Throughout life a song I've gone on singing,
Making life replete.
Whether You hear or not, I don't mind it;
Still I sing for the sake of You only.

At abode of my psyche, please appear;
And exposed, remain there in victory.
With You I'll stay fearlessly;
It's my prayer neath lotus feet.

There's no place where You are not,
No thought where You I do not spot.
Mind doesn't admit, but still I say "Come, sit";
From the eyes exudes longing.

  2. ^ At the end of this line, the words máni ná are repeatedly sung incorrectly as jáni ná. The change of meaning is significant and hence unacceptable.
