Your time has come again

Rise up Scotland

Find at last your voice

And turn away from those

Who would fill your mind once more

With fear, and self-doubt


Your beautiful and wild spirit

Retreated many years ago

Until all people could remember of you

Was a caricature,

A poor shadow of your former self


But the courage and strength are returning

You no longer need to feel shame or doubt

Your time has come again

Now don't think twice!

Seize the future

And mould it once more as you wish.
