I love to play Praise the Man although I don't like the lyrics. When I play it on the organ I play the bass part with the simulated sound of bagpipes on the organ. The music itself is the Scottish national anthem that somebody hijacked and wrote about Joseph Smith.
Meh... Scotland doesn't have an official anthem as such, but if there is one then "Flower of Scotland" is the actual anthem used at sports events etc which has a different tune, and seems to be preferred by them themselves. "Scotland the Brave" isn't used much anymore and is seen as a bit corny by Scots. But it doesn't mention fighting the English which probably makes it acceptable to the British government which rules Scotland.
We could consider having Waltzing Matilda in the hymnal. Most Aussies seem to prefer that to the official Advance Australia Fair:
Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
Under the shade of a coolibah tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled:
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda, with me."
(The gist of this is that a drifter boiled up a kettle by a creek.)
