Bengali song — Shok tapShok tap jetha nai
Setha jete chai
Heshechhila e dharani
Prana-shaka dao more
Prema sudha rakhi
My bird of light in the blossomed heart
Wants to go where there is no grief, no bereavement.
The world once mocked at my excruciating pangs.
O Beloved of my heart, grant me the cord of love-nectar.
