The Land 0f The Faithful

The Land 0' The Leal (The Land 0f The Faithful)

I'm wearin' awa', John,
Like snaw-wreaths in thaw, John;
I'm wearin' awa'
To the land o' the leal.

There's nae sorrow there, John,
There's neither cauld nor care, John:
The day is aye fair
In the land o' the leal.

Our bonnie bairn's there, John,
She was baith gude and fair, John;
And oh ! we grudged her sair
To the land o' the leal.

But sorrow's sel' wears past, John,
And joy's a-comin' fast, John
The joy that's aye to last
In the land o' the leal.

Sae dear's that joy was bought, John,
Sae free the battle fought, John,
That sinfu' man e'er brought,
To the land o' the leal.

Oh, dry your glist'ning e'e, John !
My saul langs to be free, John;
And angels beckon me
To the land o' the leal.

Oh, haud ye leal and true, John !
Your day it's wearin' thro', John;
And I'll welcome you
To the land o' the leal.

Now fare ye weel, my ain John,
This warld's cares are vain, John;
We'll meet, and we'll be fain
In the land o' the leal.

Lady Nairne
