He who would valiant be


He who would valiant be ígainst all disaster,
Let him in constancy follow the Master.
Thereís no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent to be a pilgrim.

Who so beset him round with dismal stories
Do but themselves confoundóhis strength the more is.
No foes shall stay his might; though he with giants fight,
He will make good his right to be a pilgrim.

Since, Lord, Thou dost defend us with Thy Spirit,
We know we at the end, shall life inherit.
Then fancies flee away! Iíll fear not what men say,
Iíll labor night and day to be a pilgrim.

The original text from Pilgrimís Progress:

Who would true valour see,
Let him come hither;
One here will constant be,
Come wind, come weather
Thereís no discouragement
Shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent
To be a pilgrim.

Whoso beset him round
With dismal stories
Do but themselves confound;
His strength the more is.
No lion can him fright,
Heíll with a giant fight,
He will have a right
To be a pilgrim.

Hobgoblin nor foul fiend
Can daunt his spirit,
He knows he at the end
Shall life inherit.
Then fancies fly away,
Heíll fear not what men say,
Heíll labor night and day
To be a pilgrim.
