My beloved Bengal (translation)

My Bengal of Gold,
I love you.

Forever your skies,
Your air set my heart in tune
As if it were a flute.

In spring, O mother mine,
The fragrance from your mango groves
Makes me wild with joy,
Ah, what a thrill!
In autumn, O mother mine,
In the full blossomed paddy fields
I have seen spread all over sweet smiles.

Ah, what beauty, what shades,
What an affection, and what tenderness!
What a quilt have you spread
At the feet of banyan trees
And along the banks of rivers!

Oh mother mine, words from your lips
Are like nectar to my ears.
Ah, what a thrill!

If sadness, O mother mine,
Casts a gloom on your face,
My eyes are filled with tears!
Golden Bengal,
I love you.

Amar sonar Bangla (Bengali, romanized)

Amar sonar Bangla
Ami tomay bhalôbasi

Chirôdin tomar akash,
Tomar batas,
Amar prane bajay bãshi.

O ma
Phagune tor amer bône
Ghrane pagôl kôre,
Môri hay, hay re,
O ma,
Oghrane tor bhôra khete
Ami ki dekhechhi môdhur hasi.

Ki shobha, ki chhaya go,
Ki snehô, ki maya go,
Ki ãchôl bichhayechhô
Bôter mule,
Nôdir kule kule.

Ma, tor mukher bani
Amar kane lage
Sudhar môto-

Ma tor bôdôn khani môlin hôle
ami nôyôn
o may ami nôyôn jôle bhasi
sonar Bangla,
ami tomay bhalôbasi!
