There you go THh. Sorry, but I don't know any songs with the same tune and I'm not into Kareoke. laugh.gif

Hymn To Saint Andrew

When Christ our Lord to Andrew cried come thou and follow me
The fisher left his net beside the Sea of Galilee
To teach the truth the Master taught, to tread the path he trod
Was all his will and thus he brought unnumbered souls to God.

When Andrew's hour had come and he was doomed like Christ to die
He kissed his cross exultingly and this his loving cry
O noble cross o precious wood I long have yearned for thee
Uplift me to my only God who died on thee for me.

The faith that Andrew taught once shone o'er all this kingdom fair
The cross that Jesus died upon was honoured everywhere
But evil men that faith beat down reviling Andrew's name
The cross though set in kingly crown became a sign of shame.

Saint Andrew now in heaven above thy fervent prayers renew
That Scotland yet again may love the faith entire and true
That I the cross allotted me may bear with patient love
Twill lift me as it lifted thee to reign with Christ above.

Nice one Heather, thanks.
I'm sure someone will direct me to an appropriate tune or even Youtube link.
Yes?
No?

So many events around the country this time, like never before I think.

I am going out tonight for a lovely dinner with my group. Hope you have a lovely day.

Now that is a pic. to stir the heart. The flag and Ailsa in the background. It surely does not get any better than that. We never miss celebrating St. Andrew's Day, haggis, totties, turnip, everything I can get my hands on. smile.gif I guess I got too caught up in the cooking to post, my bad. Carmella, you won't believe this but at our home up in the B R mountains, we fly the American flag, the Canadian flag the Union Jack and yes the Saltire. It does not offend anyone as we fly them off one of the upstairs porches and they are positioned to point down the valley and flap freely in the breeze. Most of our neighbours fly flags and I know that when you were in the USA, you know how flags and bunting appear on certain days. lol. Since I can't be home, I really enjoy seeing my heritage.
and I would not presume to offer an opinion, (unless asked,lol) Just a wee comment, my Mum received a pension of 7/6 a month and that was only because she was widowed at age 39 and she even had to fight for that. Whoops, off topic, sorry.

That's nothing Freemantle council in West Australia, went ahead last week and abolished Australia Day without any consultation or warning. The yuppie council decided to hold an "inclusion day" to make all minorities feel wanted. What happened to democracy and the rule of the majority? It is now apparent to me, due to the politically correct ( the rest of us are obviously wrong! ) the election of Donald Trump and Marie Le Penn, in France in the running for president of the Republic, the rise of right wing and neo fascist parties in Europe, are coagulating in response to these petty bourgeoisie imposters and imposers of mediocrity.

The rise of the extreme right is in reaction to their velvet glove pseudo socialist authoritarianism.
