RISE CALEDONIA (new version)

Rise Caledonia – tune Highland Cathedral

Rise! Caledonia, land where eagles fly
High, where the snowy mountains touch the sky
Gliding o’er forests spreading green, so free
Down, where the glen and river meet the sea.

Rise Caledonia, land of heroes bold
Genius, Inventors, poets new and old
Auld Lang Syne unites the hearts and minds
Our New Year anthem for all mankind

Rise Caledonia, we will drink to you
With courage and friendship in all we do
The bitter days of the past are gone
As Scotland’s flame burns on and on!

Rise Caledonia to your Destiny
Hearts of passion beat for Liberty
Come, heed the call now and you will see
Scotland, a nation once again and free!

Rise Caledonia, land of far-flung fame
Freedom is calling the Scottish name
Come, celebrate, hear the Piper’s play,
At Calton hill, on Independence Day!

Rise Caledonia, to your destiny
Hearts of passion beat for Liberty
Come, heed the call now and you will see
Scotland a nation once again and free!

repeat chorus twice to end and repeat last line of chorus as refrain

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
