1 Who honours courage here,
who fights the devil?
who boldly faces fear,
who conquers evil?
We're not afraid to fight!
we'll scorn the devil's spite:
Christ gives to us the right
to be his pilgrims.

2 Some may be terrified
by Satan's testing,
but faith is verified
when we're resisting.
There's no discouragement
shall cause us to relent
our firm declared intent
to be his pilgrims.

3 Though evil powers intend
to break our spirit,
we know we at the end
shall life inherit.
So, fantasies, away!
why fear what others say?
We'll labour night and day
o be his pilgrims.

after John Bunyan
