আমি খুব ভালো বেঁচে আছি
ছদ্ম সংসারে কানামাছি।

যাকে পাই তাকে ছুঁই,বলি
কেন যাস এ গলি ও গলি?

বরং একবার অকপট
উদাসীন খুব হেসে ওঠ্-

শুনে ওরা বলে এটা কে রে
তলে তলে চর হয়ে ফেরে?

এমন কী সেদিনের খোকা
আঙুল নাচিয়ে বলে ‘বোকা'!

সেই থেকে বোকা হয়ে আছি
শ্যাম বাজারের কাছাকাছি।

Hører, I, som græde,
Og med Taarer væde
Jesu Hvile-Sted!

Her er gode Dage,
Her er Fryd og Fred,
Jesus smukt sin Magt har brugt,
Kløvet alle Fiendens Skjolde,
Stormet Mur og Volde!
