My ain Country
I am far frae my hame, aní Iím weary aftenwhiles,
For the langed for hame bringiní, aní my Fatherís welcome smiles;
Aní Iíll neíer be fuí content, until mine een do see
The gowden gates oí Heavín aní my ain countrie.
The earth is fleckíd wií flowers, mony tinted, fresh aní gay
The birdies warble blithely, for my Faither made them sae:
But these sights aní these sounís will as naething be to me,
When I hear the angels singiní in my ain countrie.
Iíve His gude word oí promise that some gladsome day, the King
To His ain royal palace his banished hame will bring;
Wiíeen aní wií hert rinniní owre, we shall see
The King in His beauty, in oor ain countrie.
Sae little noo I ken, oí yon blessŤd, bonnie place
I only ken itís Hame, whaur we shall see His face,
It wad surely be eneuch for ever mair to be
In the glory oí His presence, in oor ain countrie.
He is faithfuí that hath promised, an Heíll surely come again,
Heíll keep His tryst wií me, at what oor I dinnna ken;
But He bids me still to wait, aní ready aye to be,
To gang at ony moment to my ain countrie.
