Bangladesh National Anthem Lyrics

Amar Sonar Bangla Transliteration

Amar sonar Bangla
Ami tomay bhalobashi

Chirodin tomar akash,
Tomar batas,
Amar prane bajay bashi.

O ma
Fagune tor amer bone
Ghrane pagol kore,
Mori hay, hay re,
O ma,
Oghrane tor bhora khete
Ami ki dekhechhi modhur hasi.

Ki shobha, ki chhaya go,
Ki sneho, ki maya go,
Ki achol bichhayechho
Boter mule,
Nodir kule kule.

Ma, tor mukher bani
Amar kane lage
Sudhar moto-

Ma tor bodon khani molin hole
ami noyon
o ma ami noyon jole bhasi
sonar Bangla,
ami tomay bhalobashi!

English 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.
