Bengali Lyrics:

 

রাখো রাখো রে জীবনে জীবনবল্লভে,

প্রাণমনে ধরি রাখো নিবিড় আনন্দবন্ধনে।।

আলো জ্বালো হৃদয়দীপে অতিনিভৃত অন্তরমাঝে,

আকুলিয়া দাও প্রাণ গন্ধচন্দনে।।

 

The Song In English Script:

 

Rakho, rakho re Jiboney Jibonobollobhey

Pranomoney dhori rakho nibiro anondobondhoney.

Alo jwalo hridoyodipey otinibhrito ontoromajhe,

akulia dao pran gondhochondoney.

 

 

The Song In English Translation:

 

Hold fast to the Divine Love in life,

Embrace in a bond of bliss with heart and soul.

Kindle the heart lamp in the cloistered core,

Let soul be ecstatic in sandal fragrance.

 

 

Translated by Sumana Roy

 

The song is here sung by Mohan Singh
