Stanza I

বলো না, কী সেই বস্তু যাকে বলে আলো,

যা উপভোগের সুযোগ পাইনি আমি কখনও?

দৃষ্টির আশীর্বাদ, সেটাই বা কী?

বলো না, তোমার হতভাগ্য অন্ধ ছেলেটিকে!

Stanza II

তুমি বলো তোমার দেখা অপরূপ সব জিনিসের কথা,

তুমি বলো সূর্য উজ্জ্বলভাবে কিরণ দেয়;

আমি অনুভব করি তার উন্নতা, কিন্তু কীভাবে সে

দিন বা রাত্রি সৃষ্টি করতে পারে?

Stanza III

আমার দিন বা রাত্রি আমিই করি তৈরি

যখনই আমি ঘুমাই অথবা খেলা করি;

আর সর্বদা যদি জেগে থাকতে পারি কোনোদিন

আমার সর্বদাই কেবল দিন।

Stanza IV

গভীর দীর্ঘশ্বাসের মাঝে প্রায়ই শুনি

আমার হতভাগ্য যন্ত্রণার তরে বিলাপ করো তুমি;

আমি কিন্তু নিশ্চিন্ত ধৈর্যসহকারে বইতে পারি

এমন এক ক্ষতি যা কখনওই টের পাই না।

Stanza V

তাই যা পাবার নয়, তাকে

দিও না আমার মনের আনন্দকে ধ্বংস হতে;

তাই আমি যখন গান গাই, আমি এক রাজা

যদিও আসলে এক হতভাগ্য অন্ধ ছেলে।
