For Gavin Hamilton, Esq.

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

The poor man weeps - here Gavin sleeps,
Whom canting wretches blam'd;
But with such as he, where'er he be,
May I be sav'd or damn'd.

The poor man weeps - here Gavin sleeps,
Whom canting wretches blamed;
But with such as he, wherever he be,
May I be saved or damned.
