O people of Assam
Behold your essence of music,
Behold this man, artistic.
The man whose voice is like the simplicity of a dove,
Whose voice comes as a gift from above.
The numerous songs he wrote,
Has touched our lives, note by note.
The melody of his each song
Made us throng
To him for long.
The day dawns when he takes leave of us
In large numbers people come
To pay tribute to the legend, of not just some.
But many hearts across the state,
That cry in pain with no abate.
The numerous lives he touched,
Realize his absence as a great loss.
From the Om, the Crescent to the Cross.
From the mountains to the plain,
From him, none would restrain.
The waters sunny by the shores,
Hear the lament of the people in crores
And the tide does subside
As the great Assamese legend takes leave of us
To be with God at His side.
The remarkable legend, Bhupen Hazarika,
Will remain alive in each heart,
He does, now depart.
But his contributions to our state
Will remain immortally great.
