He who would valiant be

'He who would valiant be' (Come and Praise, no 44)

He who would valiant be

  1. He who would valiant be
    'Gainst all disaster,
    Let him in constancy
    Follow the Master.
    There's no discouragement
    Shall make him once relent
    His first avowed intent
    To be a pilgrim.

  2. Who so beset him round
    With dismal stories,
    Do but themselves confound -
    His 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.

  3. Since, Lord, thou dost defend
    Us with thy Spirit,
    We know we at the end
    Shall life inherit.
    Then fancies flee away!
    I'll fear not what men say,
    I'll labour night and day
    To be a pilgrim.

It's not just a pile of old bricks
