In this 200th Thought For The Day video, Richard reflects on the hymn 'Who would true valour see.' (singing The Faith 486.

1. Who would true valour see
let them come hither:
here's one will constant be,
come wind, come weather.
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 lion can him fright;
he'll with a giant fight,
but he will have the right
to be a pilgrim.

3. 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 labour night and day
to be a pilgrim.
