(Chorus to start) Take Me back on the Wings of Glory Carry me far across the sea;
Caledonia's Muse -
My nation’s spirit is my Queen
She rules majestic, evergreen

Immortal muse, my verses bring!
Oft at the dawn I’d pensive stray
To while some laden cares away
Far, far from the city throng
I’d hear your voice in votive song
