“Scots Wha Hae” Robert Burns

Scots wha hae wi’ Wallace bled
Scots wham Bruce has aften led
Welcome tae your gory bed
Or tae victory
Now’s the day and now’s the hour
See the front o’ battle lour
See approach proud Edward’s power
Chains and slavery

Wha will be a traitor knave?
Wha can fill a coward’s grave?
Wha sae base as be a slave?
Let him turn and flee
Wha for Scotland’s King and law
Freedom’s sword will strongly draw?
Freeman stand or freeman fa’
Let him follow me.

By oppression’s woes and pains
By your sons in servile chains
We will drain our dearest veins
But they shall be free
Lay the proud usurpers low
Tyrants fall in every foe
Liberty’s in every blow
Let us do or dee
