The Selkirk Grace
“Some hae meat and canna eat, and some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat and we can eat Sae let the Lord be thankit.”
Scots Wha’ Hae
Scots, wha hae wi’ Wallace bled,
Scots, sham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gor bed
Or to victorie!
Now’s the day, and now’s the hour;
See the front o’ battle lour,
See approach proud Edward’s power
Chains and slaverie!
By Oppression’s woes
and pains,By your sons in servile chains,
We will drain our dearest veins
But they shall be free!
Scots Wha’ Hae (Scots who have) written by Robert Burns as he imagined Robert the Bruce addressing his troops at Bannockburn.
