In Lamington Kirk

 

Burns Original

Standard English Translation

In Lamington Kirk

As cauld a wind as ever blew,
A cauld kirk, and in't but few,
As cauld a minister's ever spak -
Ye'se a' be het or I come back!

 

In Lamington Church

As cold a wind as ever blew,
A cold church, and in it but few,
As cold a minister as ever spoke -
You shall all be hot before I come back!
