"But as for Christian, he had some respite, and was remanded back to prison; so he there remained for a space. But he that overrules all things, having the power of their rage in their own hand, so wrought it about, that Christian for that time escaped them and went his way. And as he went he sang, saying: " Well, faithful, thou has faithfully professed./ unto thy lord, with whom thou shalt be blest;/ when faithless ones, with all their vain delights/ are crying out under their hellish plights:/ sing. faithful, sing, and let thy name survive;/ for though they killed thee, thou art yet alive. " Now I saw in my dream, that Christian went not forth alone; for there was one whose name was hopeful (being so made by the beholding of Christian and faithful in their words and behavior in their sufferings at the fair) who joined himself unto him, and, entering into a brotherly covenant, told him that he would be his companion. " So I saw that quickly after they were out of the fair they overtook one that was going before them, who name was by-ends." [P. 17.]
