My soul needs this nourishment today, so I hope nobody minds if once again I post this–my favorite rendition of one of my very favorite hymns, To Be a Pilgrim (also known as He Who Would Valiant Be).
John Bunyan wrote this song in jail in 1684, having been imprisoned for preaching without a license from the government. He wrote it into Part 2 of his immortal Pilgrim’s Progress.
It doesn’t look like the malicious power of government was able to quench John Bunyan’s spirit, does it?
As for my own spirit, I think for once I’ll post another hymn right after this.
