"Consider, my Lord, what glory it would be before God and man if we were to drive the Catholics out of England and follow them to France, and, in imitation of the late King of Sweden [Gustavus Adolphus], rally around us all those of the [reformed] religion in France, and plant, either with consent or by force, our religion in Paris, and thence to Rome, drive out Antichrist, and burn the town." -- Alexander Leslie, Lord General in command of the Army of the Covenant, to Lord Home LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) LinkExternal link

"When to the kirk we come,
We'll purge it ilka room,
Frae popish relics, and a' sic innovation,
That a' the world may see,
There's nane in the right but we,
Of the auld Scottish nation."

-- sung by Covenanters to the tune of
'The Scots March'
on their way to Marston Moor
