Scotland national anthem lyrics: All the words to The Flower of Scotland – The Sun

SCOTLAND host Ireland in the Six Nations as they look to keep their slim title hopes alive.

And you can rest assured their national song, the Flower of Scotland, will be belted out proudly before the game.

What are the lyrics to The Flower of Scotland?

O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again,
That fought and died for,
Your wee bit Hill and Glen,
And stood against him (against who?),
Proud Edward's Army,
And sent him homeward,
To think again.

The Hills are bare now,
And Autumn leaves
lie thick and still,
O'er land that is lost now,
Which those so dearly held,
That stood against him (against who?),
Proud Edward's Army,
And sent him homeward,
To think again.

Those days are past now,
And in the past
they must remain,
But we can still rise now,
And be the nation again,
That stood against him (against who?),
Proud Edward's Army,
And sent him homeward,
To think again.
