William Wallace was a Scottish warrior who fought for the independence of Scotland. He never saw his dream come true, but Scotland won its freedom just 23 years after his death.
What wailing bagpipes seemed to say
Was true; you’d never win this war,
The miracles you’d seen produced,
You knew that they’d occurred before—
But still you fought for freedom’s cause,
You spilled your blood—it seemed in vain;
You scoffed at every gift held out
You saw behind them captives’ chains—
When they had dragged you through the streets,
Then made you ready to be hanged,
Did you give up the fight that day?
Or was it battle hymns you sang?
Did you see through the fog of hate?
Or were you deafened by the din?
When faced with death, did you see life,
And know that freedom soon must win?
For what the bagpipes told your soul
Came true; it all was meant to be—
For not long after you had died
St. Andrew’s cross was flying free.
