Gabhir Asha Prane Amar

Gabhir asha prane amar
Ekti shudhu gabhir asha
Mayer kache pabo ami
Bishwajayer bhalo basa
Mayer sena habo ami
Habo mayer drashta kabi
Rup sagare bhasbe jani
Amar hiyar gyana-rabi

There is only one hope,
One hope inside my heart.
From You I shall get
The world-conquering Love.
With Your Love and Affection
I shall become Your seer-poet.
My knowledge-sun will blossom above the horizon
On the sea of Your translucent beauty, O Mother.
