    Pioneers Courageous

    1. When I think of pioneers

    who lived so long ago,

    I wonder how they traveled

    through the heat and mud and snow.

    I know their legs grew weary

    with hardships on the way,

    But love for Heav’nly Father

    made them stronger day by day.

    They had faith in ev’ry footstep,

    hope in ev’ry word.

    They were pioneers courageous,

    who loved and served the Lord.

    2. When I’m sad or feel afraid,

    or when temptations come,

    I’ll think of what the pioneers

    with courage would have done.

    I’ll keep the Lord’s commandments

    and pray for guidance too.

    I know that He will help me.

    I’ll be cheerful, brave, and true.

    I’ll have faith in ev’ry footstep,

    hope in ev’ry word.

    Like the pioneers courageous,

    I’ll love and serve the Lord.
