“I Can Be a Modern-Day Pioneer,” Friend, July 1993, 38I Can Be a Modern-Day PioneerWords and music by Barbara A. McConochie1. Oh, I can be a modern-day pioneer,and I can help to build the kingdom too:I can think pure thoughts and turn away from sin,and I can do kind deeds and share my love within.I can serve my fam’ly and do it with a grin!Yes, I can be a modern pioneer!2. Oh, I can be a modern-day pioneer,and I can blaze a path of righteousness:I can pray sincerely each and ev’ry day,and I can keep my spirit clean in ev’ry way.I can read God’s word and listen and obey.Yes, I can be a modern pioneer!3. Oh, I will be a modern-day pioneer,and I will be a missionary too:I will love my neighbor, lend a helping hand,and I will tell the truth and take a righteous stand.I will seek the Lord and follow His command.Yes, I will be a modern pioneer!Copyright © 1993 by Barbara A.
