Bruce Renewed

Of redemption…

   The Bruce Was Renewed

The Earl of Pembroke pursued
Robert’s band
While The Bruce desperately devised a new plan
But there remained that ill omened action he still rued

Wasn’t the killing itself
But that it was done upon holy altar
So Bruce paused by Tyndrum at Strathfillan past Loch Tay

Kneeling before the Abbot of Inchafray
Absolved once more for the sacrilege at Greyfriars
Robert’s spiritual health

With the mantel of piety was again imbued
At the shrine of St. Fillan
Of Glenlochart.   There on ancient holy land
The Bruce was renewed
