Rise Caledonia (Sung To The Tune Highland Cathedral)
Rise! Caledonia, land where eagles fly
High where the snowy mountains touch the sky
Gliding o’er forest spreading green, so free
Down, where the glen and river meet the sea.
Rise Caledonia, land of martial fame
Fearless in battle is the Scottish name
Proudest of nations across the wide world
Hear the pipes and drums as our flag’s unfurl’d
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 ...
Caledonia's Muse -
My nation’s spirit is my Queen
She rules majestic, evergreen
Caledonia’s voice for whom I sing
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
