Ode for the 700th anniversary for the Declaration of Arbroath

Not for riches, not for glory
Play your role in Scotland’s story
Freedom is our destiny
A place in time that will always be.
Not for wealth not for honour
Liberty’s our mighty author
Freedom is in our very soul
Our love, our life our only goal.

This is the spirit of Arbroath
This is our historic oath
Whatever rank whatever station
for a free and democratic nation
Not for conquest, not for greed
A place to plant a peaceful seed
In Adam’s garden all designed
for grace and love for all mankind
