Let's read:

O say, what is that thing called light,

ও বল, আলো নামের ঐ জিনিসটা কি,

Which I can ne'er enjoy?

যেটি আমি কখন উপভোগ করতে পারি না?

What is the blessing of the sight?

দৃষ্টির আশীর্বাদ কী?

O tell your poor blind boy!

হে তোমার দরিদ্র অন্ধ ছেলেকে বল!

You talk of wondrous things you see,

তুমি যে বিস্ময়কর জিনিসগুলি দেখ সে সম্পর্কে কথা বল

You say the sun shines bright;

তুমি বল সূর্য উজ্জ্বল কিরণ দেয়;

I feel him warm, but how can he

আমি তাকে উষ্ণ বোধ করি, তবে সে কীভাবে পারে

Then make it day or night?

তাহলে দিন অথবা রাত বানায়?

My day or night myself I make

আমার দিন বা রাত আমি নিজেই তৈরি করি

Whene'er I sleep or play;

আমি যখন ঘুমাই অথবা খেলি;

And could I ever keep awake

এবং আমি কি কখনও জেগে থাকতে পারি

With me 'twere always day.

আমার সাথে সর্বদা দিন দিন।

With heavy sighs I often hear

ভারী দীর্ঘশ্বাস নিয়ে আমি প্রায়শই শুনি

You mourn my hapless woe;

তুমি আমার অসহায় দুঃখে শোক কর;

But sure with patience I can bear

তবে অবশ্যই ধৈর্য সঙ্গে আমি সহ্য করতে পারি

A loss I ne'er know.

একটি ক্ষতি আমি জানতেই পারি নি।

Then let not what I cannot have

তাহলে আমার যা নেই তা যেন না ঘটে

My cheer of mind destroy;

আমার মনের প্রফুল্লতা ধ্বংস;

Whilst thus I sing, I am a king,

যদিও আমি এইভাবে গান করি, আমি একজন রাজা,

Although a poor blind boy.

যদিও দরিদ্র অন্ধ ছেলে।
