The lyrics of the state song of Arunachal Pradesh – Hamara Arunachal:

Suraj kiran sheesh bhusan

Kanth mey tushaar gher

Prabhaat surya chumbeet desh

Hamara Arunachal, Hamara Arunachal

Bharat mata kee chhoti see munni

Hamara Arunachal

Heefajat se maa tumko rak khengey

Khatrey jeetney aayengey

Man hamara naampey tumhara

Sada rahey chanchal

Prabhaat surya chumbeet desh

Hamara Arunachal, Hamara Arunachal

Jhhum kheton ka patharon mey

Khub surat dhaan

Mithuno kee pavitrata

Hamarey gaon ka maan

Har logo kee bhalai hamarey

Ekta kaa bal

Prabhaat surya chumbeet desh

Hamara Arunachal, Hamara Arunachal

Kameng, Siang, Lohit, aur Tirap, Subansiri

Saarey jyoti ke phool he jaisa

Sobha diya himgiri

Yeh paanch phool ek huwey aaj

Aanand mey masgul

Prabhaat surya chumbeet desh

Hamara Arunachal Hamara Arunachal.
