V. BACCHANALIAN AND SOCIAL             215
May Freedom, Harmony, and Love, Unite you in the grand design,
Beneath th' Omniscient eye above— The glorious Architect Divine— That you may keep th' unerring line,
Still rising by the plummet's law, Till Order bright, completely shine,
Shall be my pray'r when far awa.
And you, farewell! whose merits claim
Justly that highest badge to wear : Heav'n bless your honour'd, noble name,
To Masonry and Scotia dear !
A last request permit me here,— When yearly ye assemble a',
One round, I ask it with a tear, To him, the Bard that's far awa.
No. 241. Up wi' the carls o' Dysarl.
Tune: Hey cd! thro\ Scots Musical Museum, 1792, No. 392.
Up wi' the carls o' Dysart And the lads o' Buckhaven,
And the kimmers o' Largo And the lasses o' Leven.
Chorus. Hey, ca' thro', cd thro1, For we hae meikle ado; Hey, cd1 thro', cd thro', For we hae meikle ado I
We hae tales to tell,
And we hae sangs to sing ; We hae pennies to spend,
And we hae pints to bring.
We'll live a' our days,
And them that comes behin', Let them do the like,
And spend the gear they win.
