Aha! What an Endless Joy This Day!

Aha! What an endless joy this day!

The jewel of the country, Sheikh Hasina's blissful birthday marks today!

Bengal's victory resonates around the land--

She commits herself to reviving Nation's Father's dreams.

The jewel of the country, Sheikh Hasina's blissful birthday marks today!

 

After the bloodiest night of Nineteen Seventy Five as

The boat sank in the whirlpool of time,

Everyone screamed: Rescue the boat!

But drowned unheard.

Bangabandhu's dreams are being revived

At his daughter's hands.

The jewel of the country, Sheikh Hasina's blissful birthday marks today!

 

Turning the tide in the hostile rivers, Sheikh Hasina

At a winning pace

Goes on steering the boat reaping the harvests of fortune.

The jewel of the country, Sheikh Hasina's blissful birthday marks today!

 

With the Nation's Father's blood

This soil still lies soaked.

From the blood-soaked soil, the land rises--

A land where our dreams dwell.

Bengal's victory resonates around the land.

The jewel of the country, Sheikh Hasina's blissful birthday marks today!

 

Aha! What an endless joy this day!
