As I was wondering north to south
And roaming east to west
I came across a country
I decided I like best

It may not be the biggest
Or the most powerful place on earth
But I’m finding that the people
Make up for it in worth

I wandered in the Highlands
I wandered by the sea
I wandered in the city streets
And thought this God’s country


The people they were friendly
The landscape it was grand
I find that I will greatly miss
The culture and the land

I’d listened to the music
I’d even read the books
But nothing writ was worthy
Believing’s being here to look

I can’t remember all the stories
But I remember how it felt
To walk where Highland warriors died
And hike a mountain belt

I remember feeling proud and strong
And I remember feeling brave
I remember and am thankful
For the feelings this place gave

And I hope I can come back here
And I hope it won’t be too late
For Scotland is God’s country
And I think that it is great.

I love this! Have you been to Scotland recently? I grew up there, between the ages of 5 and 10, so I'm longing to go back and visit as soon as I have the money!
