R. Burns Scots, wha hae wi Wallace bled, 
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led, 
Welcome to your gory 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!

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 ev'ry foe! 
Liberty's in ev'ry blow! - 
Let us do - or die!

Robert Burns
