Who Would True Valour See – John Bunyan

John Bunyan (d. 1688)John Bunyan (d. 1688), the great Puritan preacher, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress, Sighs From Hell, The Holy War, and many other prophetic and evangelistic writings, actually wrote a hymn called “Who Would True Valour See.” It was the only hymn he wrote. It is recorded by the British folk group Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band in Sing Lustily and with Good Courage from SayDisc.

Who would true valour see,
Let him come hither;
One here will constant be,
Come wind, come weather
There’s 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,
He’ll with a giant fight,
But 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 flee away,
He’ll fear not what men say,
He’ll labor night and day
To be a pilgrim.
