It has subsequently undergone various orchestrations and had lyrics added in English and in Scottish Gaelic. These include the verse: Rise, Caledonia, let your voices ring/In this Highland Cathedral of our God and King./Whom, joy and liberty, to all, will bring./Come; let your heart, with love and courage, sing.

Massively powerful piece of music, but as the lyrics are very strongly Christian, the chances of the neo-Marxist SNP choosing it as an anthem are very small indeed!
