Sae we maun gang wirsells

There are some would come with us
but they have no eyes to see;
There are some would come with us
but they have no heart for it;
There are some would come with us
but have no stomach for a fight;
There are some would come with us
but are too weary to go far;
There are some would come with us
but they will only take the lead;
There are some would come with us
but they can’t leave behind
what matters more to them –
Or maybe will, but somehow not today;

There are some would come with us
but have yet to realise;
There are some would come with us
but they can’t imagine how;
There are some would come with us
but who do not know the way;
There are some would come with us
but deny it to themselves;
There are some who came with us
but who are no longer with us;
There are some whom we would take
but they do not choose to come,
So we must go ourselves.
