Gordon Brown has made an impassioned final plea to Scots to vote against independence.
The former prime minister drew on the NHS, the welfare state and world wars as he made a rousing speech on the last day of campaigning.
His oratory drew plaudits from across the political spectrum.
On Twitter, Labour heavyweight John Prescott lauded "the best speech I've ever heard from Gordon Brown" and shadow minister Chris Bryant branded it "spine-tingling speech of the decade". Meanwhile Tory MP Zac Goldsmith said the speech was "absolutely magnificent".
Pro-Union campaigners will now be hoping that Mr Brown's intervention can propel them to victory after an Ipsos MORI poll this evening gave the No camp a slender 2% lead with just hours until the polls open.
At a Better Together rally in Scotland, Mr Brown said: "The vote tomorrow is not about whether Scotland is a nation. We are. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.
"The vote tomorrow is whether you want to break and sever every link. And I say: let's keep our UK pension, let's keep our UK pound, let's keep our UK passport, let's keep our UK welfare state."
Mr Brown added: "Let us tell the undecided, the waverers, those not sure how to vote, let us tell them what we have achieved together. We fought two world wars together and there is not a cemetery in Europe that does not have Scots, English, Welsh and Irish lying side-by-side...
"And we not only won these wars together, we built the peace together. We built the health service together. We built the welfare state together. We will build the future together. And what we have built together, let no narrow nationalism split asunder, ever."
At the same rally, Better Together leader Alistair Darling warned Scots that a Yes vote would mean "years of uncertainty".
But speaking this morning, Alex Salmond hailed the "exhilarating" nature of the referendum campaign and dismissed the promise of more powers announced by "Westminster leaders".
The First Minister has also written to voters appealing to them to vote Yes.
He said: "The talking is nearly done. The campaigns will have had their say. What's left is just us - the people who live and work here. The only people with a vote. The people who matter.
"The people who for a few precious hours during polling day hold sovereignty, power, authority in their hands. It's the greatest most empowering moment any of us will ever have. Scotland's future - our country in our hands.
"What to do? Only each of us knows that. For my part, I ask only this. Make this decision with a clear head and a clear conscience."
