অ’ মোৰ আপোনাৰ দেশ
অ’ মোৰ চিকুণী দেশ
এনেখন সুৱলা, এনেখন সুফলা
এনেখন মৰমৰ দেশ ।

অ’ মোৰ সুৰীয়া মাত
অসমৰ সুৱদি মাত
পৃথিৱীৰ ক'তো বিচাৰি জনমটো
নোপোৱা কৰিলেও পাত ।

অ’ মোৰ ওপজা ঠাই
অ’ মোৰ অসমী আই
চাই লওঁ এবাৰ মুখনি তোমাৰ
হেঁপাহ মোৰ পলোৱা নাই ।

O mûr apûnar dex
O mûr sikuni dex
Ênêkhôn xuwôla, ênêkhôn xuphôla
Ênêkhôn môrômôr dex

O mûr xuriya mat
Ôxômôr xuwodi mat
Prithiwir kotû, bisari jônômtû
Nûpûwa korileo pat

O mûr ûpôja thai
O mûr ôxômi ai
Sai lôõ êbar, mukhôni tûmar
Hêpah mûr pôlûwa nai.

O my endearing motherland
O my enchanting motherland
So euphonious, so bounteous
So near and dear a motherland

O my euphonious voice
The melodic voice of Assam
Nowhere in the world, you can ever find
even if you scour through life.

O my land of birth
O my mother Assam
Let me have one, look at your face
My heart hasn't been sated.

(Key: D major
Rhythm: Waltz)
