Subject: RE: Tune Add: The tops in National Anthems
Lord grant that Marshal Wade
    May by thy mighty aid
    Victory bring.
    May he sedition hush,
    And like a torrent rush,
    Rebellious Scots to crush.
    God save the King!


But fair does, "rebellious Scots" here, would have meant specifically those Scots who were in rebellion, rather than the majorityy of Scots who backed the Hanoverian usurpers, or were sitting on their hands waiting to see which sides won, and thus should be supported.
