Scots! Wha hae wi’ Wallace bled,

Scots! wham Bruce has often led,

Welcome to your gory bed,

Or to victory!

Now’s the day and now the hour;

See the front of battle lour:

See approach proud Edward’s power:

Chains and slavery!

Wha will be a traitor knave?

Wha can fill a cowards 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,

Freedom stand or freedom fa’

Let him on wi’ me!

By oppressions woes and pains!

By your sons in servile pains!

We will draw our 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 die!

So may God ever defend the cause of truth in liberty, as He did that day! Amen.

–Robert Burns

Commemorating this day in 1314, when the Battle of Bannock Burn commenced.

    Yes!
    I love the story of wallace. The movie braveheart is ok but doesn’t adequately catch the struggle that they went thru.

    For the King!

  • Quote of the Day

    “We love the old saints, missionaries, martyrs, and reformers. Our Luthers, Bunyans, Wesleys and Asburys, etc... We will write their biographies, reverence their memories, frame their epitaphs, and build their monuments. We will do anything except imitate them. We cherish the last drop of their blood, but watch carefully over the first drop of our own.”
    - A. W. Tozer
