Mere Deepak
     madhur madhur mere deepak jal!
yug yug pratidin pratikShaN pratipal;
   priyatam kaa path aalokit kar!

     saurabh phailaa vipul dhoop ban;
     mRdul mom-saa ghul re mRdu tan;
           de prakaash kaa sindhu aparimit,
           tere jeevan kaa aNu gal-gal!
pulak-pulak mere deepak jal!

     saare sheetal komal nootan,
     maa(n)g rahe tujhako jvaalaa-kaN;
           vishvashalabh sir dhun kahataa "main
           haay n jal paayaa tujhamen mil"!
sihar-sihar mere deepak jal!

     jalate nabh men dekh asankhyak;
     snehaheen nit kitane deepak;
           jalamay saagar kaa ur jalataa;
           vidyut le ghirataa hai baadal!
vihans-vihans mere deepak jal!

     drum ke ang harit komalatam,
     jvaalaa ko karate hRdayangam;
           vasudhaa ke jaḌ antar men bhee,
           bandee naheen hai taapon kee halachal!
bikhar-bikhar mere deepak jal!

     mere nishvaason se drutatar,
     subhag n too bujhane kaa bhay kar;
           main anchal kee oT kiye hoo(n),
           apanee mRdu palakon se chanchal!
sahaj-sahaj mere deepak jal!

     seemaa hee laghutaa kaa bandhan,
     hai anaadi too mat ghaḌiyaa(n) gin;
           main dRg ke akShay koshon se -
           tujhamen bharatee hoo(n) aa(n)soo-jal!
sajal-sajal mere deepak jal!

     tam aseem teraa prakaash chir;
     khelenge nav khel nirantar;
           tam ke aNu-aNu men vidyut saa -
           amiT chitr ankit karataa chal!
saral-saral mere deepak jal!

     too jal jal hotaa jitanaa kShay;
     vah sameep aataa chhalanaamay;
           madhur milan men miT jaanaa too -
           usakee ujjaval smit men ghul-khil!
madir-madir mere deepak jal!

     priyatam kaa path aalokit kar!
