On Wm. Muir In Tarbolton Mill

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

 

An honest man here lies at rest,
As e'er God with His image blest:
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, the guide of youth:
Few hearts like his - with virtue warm'd,
Few heads with knowledge so inform'd:
If there's another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.

 

An honest man here lies at rest,
As ever God with His image blessed:
The friend of man, the friend of truth,
The friend of age, the guide of youth:
Few hearts like his - with virtue warmed,
Few heads with knowledge so informed:
If there is another world, he lives in bliss;
If there is none, he made the best of this.
