The National Anthem of Bangladesh

My Bengal of gold, I love you

Forever your skies,

Your air set my heart in tune as if it were a flute.

In spring,

Oh mother mine,

the fragrance from your mango-groves makes me wild with joy

Ah, what a thrill!

What a quilt have you spread at the feet of banyan trees and along the banks of rivers!

Oh mother mine,

Word from your lips are like a nectar to my ears!

Ah what a thrill!

If sadness,

Oh mother mine,

casts a gloom on your face

My eyes are filled with tears!
