John Hunter’s Grave, Tweedsmuir – SFH027

Picking up from the earlier episode at the Devil’s Beef Tub, Matthew Vogan and Jimmy Fisher are in Tweedsmuir to tell the rest of the story of what happened to John Hunter.

“When Zion’s King was robbed of His right,

His witnesses in Scotland put to flight,

When Popish prelates and indulgency

Combined against Christ to ruin Presbytery,

All who would not unto their idols bow

They sought them out and whom they found they slew.

‘For owning of Christ’s cause I then did die.

My blood for veangeance on His en’mies did cry.’
