The Thistle of Scotia

Let the lily of France in luxuriance bloom,
    Let the shamrock of Erin its beauty maintain,
    Let the rose of fair England still waft its perfume,
    But the Thistle of Scotia will dearest remain.
    'Twas the badge that our fathers triumphantly wore
    When they followed their sovereigns to vanquish the Dane,
    The emblem our Wallace in battle aye bore;
    Then the Thistle of Scotia must dearest remain.
    It blooms on our mountains, it blooms in the vale,
    It blooms in the winter, in snow, and in rain;
    The type of her sons when rude seasons assail ~
    To Scotia, her Thistle will dearest remain.
