বড়ো আশা ক’রে এসেছি গো, কাছে ডেকে লও/Boro Asha Korey Eshechi Go/ I have come with great hope, gather me to your heart

বড়ো আশা ক’রে এসেছি গো,   কাছে ডেকে লও,

                       ফিরায়ো  না  জননী।।

          দীনহীনে কেহ চাহে না,   তুমি তারে রাখিবে জানি গো।

          আর আমি-যে কিছু চাহি নে,   চরণতলে বসে থাকিব।

          আর আমি-যে কিছু চাহি নে,   জননী ব’লে শুধু ডাকিব।

  তুমি না রাখিলে, গৃহ আর পাইব কোথা,   কেঁদে কেঁদে কোথা বেড়াব–

          ওই-যে  হেরি  তমসঘনঘোরা  গহন  রজনী।।

I have come with great hope, gather me to your heart

                      Do not sent me away mother.

          No one else may want the poor and meek, but I know that you will have time for him

          There is nothing else I want but to sit at your feet.

          There is nothing else that I want but to call you my mother.

  If you do not give me shelter, where else would I seek it, weeping as I wander

          As I look at the dense night approaching, filled with dark foreboding.
