When will we see
Your like once more,
That fought and died for,
Your wee bit Hill and Glen,
And stood towards him (towards who?),

And despatched him homeward,
To assume once more.

The Hills are naked now,
And Autumn leaves
lie thick and nonetheless,
O'er land that’s misplaced now,
Which these so dearly held,
That stood towards him (towards who?),

These days are previous now,
And in the previous

However we will nonetheless rise now,
And be the nation once more,
That stood towards him (towards who?),

And despatched him homeward,
To assume once more.
