[321] On the darkness of his dreaming
     Great and sudden glory shone;
Over bonds and death victorious
     Stands he by the Father's throne!

From the radiant ranks of martyrs
     Notes of joy and praise he hears,
Songs of his poor land's deliverance
     Sounding from the future years.

Lo, he wakes! but airs celestial
     Bathe him in immortal rest,
And he sees with unsealed vision
     Scotland's cause with victory blest.

Shining hosts attend and guard him
     As he leaves his prison door;
And to death as to a triumph
     Walks the great MacCallum More!
