অসমৰ জাতীয় সংগীত
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 ।

The great state anthem of Assam :---------
Oh motherland of mine and yours
Oh my clean state
Such sweetness, such fruitful
Oh my dear country
Oh my melodious voice
Sweet voice of Assam
You can search the world
in your life, you won't find it.
Oh my place of birth
Oh my mother Assam
Let me see your face one more time
My longing has not end.
Translation -Jitu Das.
