Talvaron pe sar vaar diye
Swords bear memories of our blood
Angaaron mein jism jalaya hai
Burning embers remember our burnt flesh

Tab jaake ke kahin humne sar pe
By harvesting our sweat and blood
Yeh kesari rang sajaaya hai
We were bestowed this saffron crown!

Aye meri zameen afsos nahi
Jo tere liye sau dard sahe
Do not mourn O Motherland, For you Id bear a hundred blows
Mehfooz rahe teri aan sada
Chaahe jaan meri yeh rahe na rahe
May your glory stay intact, Whether I live or die

Haan meri zameen mehboob meri
Meri nas-nas mein tera ishq bahe
My Land, my beloved, Your love runs in my veins

Pheeka na pade kabhi rang tera
Jismon se nikal ke khoon kahe
With every drop of my blood. Ill ensure your color never fades

Teri mitti mein mill jawaan
To become one with your soil
Gul banke main khill jawaan
And blossom as a garden
Itni si hai dil ki aarzoo
Thats all my heart desires

Teri nadiyon mein beh jawaan
To wash away in your rivers
Teri kheton mein lehrawaan
Soaring across your fields
Itni si hai dil ki aarzu
Thats all my heart desires

Sarson se bhare khalihaan mere
Jahaan jhoom ke bhagra paa na saka
May the mustard fields bloom and sway, Where I couldnt dance with joy.

Aabad rahe woh gaaon mera
Jahaan laut ke wapas jaa na saka
May my village thrive and prosper, where I couldnt return.

Ho watna ve, mere watna ve
Tera mera pyar nirala tha
O beloved country, Our love is that of legends.

Kurbaan hua teri asmat pe
Main kitna naseebon wala tha
To be sacrificed in your honour, How blessed was I!

Teri mitti mein mill jawaan
To become one with your soil..
Gul banke main khill jawaan
And blossom as a garden.
Itni si hai dil ki aarzoo
Thats all my heart desires.

Teri nadiyon mein beh jawaan
To wash away in your rivers,
Teri kheton mein lehrawaan
Soaring across your fields,
Itni si hai dil ki aarzoo
Thats all my heart desires.

O heer meri tu hansti rahe
O my heer (beloved), may you always be happy.
Teri aankh ghadi bhar nam na ho
May there never be even a hint of a tear in your eyes ever
Main marta tha jis mukhde pe
The face that I cared for so much.
Kabhi uska ujaala kam na ho
May the glow of that beautiful face never goes off.

O maayi meri kya fiqr tujhe
O dear mother, what are you worried for
Kyun aankh se dariya behta hai
Why does a river of tears flowing from your eyes
Tu kehti thi tera chaand hoon main
You used to say that Im your moon,
Aur chaand hamesha rehta hai
And moon lives forever.

Teri mitti mein mill jawaan
To become one with your soil..
Gul banke main khill jawaan
And blossom as a garden.
Itni si hai dil ki aarzoo
Thats all my heart desires.

Teri nadiyon mein beh jawaan
To wash away in your rivers,
Teri kheton mein lehrawaan
Soaring across your fields,
Itni si hai dil ki aarzoo
Thats all my heart desires.
