Bengali Lyrics:

 

রজনীর শেষ তারা, গোপনে আঁধারে আধো-ঘুমে

বাণী তব রেখে যাও প্রভাতের প্রথম কুসুমে ॥

          সেইমত যিনি এই জীবনের আনন্দরূপিণী

শেষক্ষণে দেন যেন তিনি         নবজীবনের মুখ চুমে ॥

              এই নিশীথের স্বপ্নরাজি

          নবজাগরণক্ষণে নব গানে উঠে যেন বাজি।

     বিরহিণী যে ছিল রে মোর হৃদয়ের মর্ম-মাঝে

বধূবেশে সেই যেন সাজে     নবদিনে চন্দনে কুঙ্কুমে ॥

 

 

The Song in English Script:

 

Rajanir shesh tara gopone andhare adho ghume

Bani tabo rekhe jao prabhater prothom kusume

Shei moto jini ai jiboner anandorupini

Shesh khone den jeno tini nabo jiboner mukh chume

Ai nishither swapno raji

Nabo jagoran khone nabo gane uthe jeno baji

Birohini je chhilo re mor hridoyer marmo majhe

Badhu beshe shei jeno shaje      nabo dine chandone kumkume

 

 

The Song in English Translation:

 

Last star of the night, secretly, half asleep in the dark

Keep your message for the first blossom of the morn.

                    As she, who is this life’s all joy and bliss

                    in the end, welcomes new life with a kiss.

                 Let all dreams of this night

              strum new tunes awakening to a new dawn.

    As she who dwells in my heart core;

with a yearning soul for her beloved

adorns herself in bridal beauty to begin a new life.
