Assamese[2] Transliteration Phonemic transcription (IPA) English [3]

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 তোমাৰ মুখনি এবাৰ
হেঁপাহ মোৰ পলোৱা নাই ।

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

O my euphonious voice
The melodic voice of Assam (Bharat)
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.

Rhythm: Waltz)
