Kalo Baran Nai Je Kanu

Kalo baran nai je Kanu jena kancha sona
Bishwa ruper rup madhuri jyoti diye bona
Amar maner kali dhele pare dekhai tare kalo
Ta nahale priya je mor shudhui ujjwal alo
Alo andhar tahar gara Kanu bishwamoy
Sabar sathe habe amar naba parichoy


My Krishna is not black,
He is pure gold.
He Himself is woven
Into the universal Beauty, Light and Splendour.
He looks dark
Because I have spilled the ink of my mind on Him.
Otherwise, my Beloved is All-Light.
He created Light and Darkness.
He is within and without the Cosmos Vast.
With this knowledge,
I will have a new acquaintance
With the world at large.
