Roman script[nb 1] Bengali script Translation

Tumi ámár kata ápan
Áge bujhini
Chile ámár káche káche
Kena d́ákini

Chile ámár sakal káje
Chande gáne surer májhe
Se viińár tár ájo báje
Takhan shuńini

Ogo ámár calár pathe
Gabhiir áṋdháre
Jegechilo sei smrtit́i
Mane báre báre
Abhimáne gele sare
Ámáy phele anek dúre
Kena takhan páye dhare
Hiyáy rákhini
Sakal dvidhá sariye diye
Dhyáne dharini

তুমি আমার কত আপন
আগে বুঝিনি
ছিলে আমার কাছে কাছে
কেন ডাকিনি

ছিলে আমার সকল কাজে
ছন্দে গানে সুরের মাঝে
সে বীণার তার আজও বাজে
তখন শুণিনি

ওগো আমার চলার পথে
গভীর আঁধারে
জেগেছিলো সেই স্মৃতিটি
মনে বারে বারে
অভিমানে গেলে সরে
আমায় ফেলে অনেক দূরে
কেন তখন পায়ে ধরে
হিয়ায় রাখিনি
সকল দ্বিধা সরিয়ে দিয়ে
ধ্যানে ধরিনি

You are my very own;
I did not realize it before.
To me You remained ever near;
Why did I not call?

You were in all my deeds,
In the meter and music of my melodies.
Today, those harp strings still resound;
Back then, I did not hear.

Lord, along my journey,
While in deepest darkness,
Rose those same souvenirs
In mind, time after time.
From self-esteem You'd withdrawn,
Casting me far away.
Why, when clasping Your feet at last,
Do I not keep You in my heart?
Having shed all doubts,
Why do I not hold You in dhyán?[nb 2]
