Little Pioneer Children

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Happily

1. ① Little pioneer children gath’ring berries for food;

② See the pioneer children hunting chips for wood.

③ Gladly helping each other, merry and happy were they,

④ Walking along, moving along, on their way.

2. ① Hear the pioneer children singing all the day.

② See the pioneer children; there’s still time for play.

③ Often singing and dancing, merry and happy were they,

④ Walking along, moving along, on their way.

To sing this song as a round, divide into groups. Begin with a new group at each number. Round may be sung with or without accompaniment.
