When I Hear of Pioneer Children

Friend Magazine, 2016/07 Jul

When I hear of pioneer children,

Of trials and courage and faith,

I want to be willing as they were

To look to the Lord for my strength.

I’ll follow the prophets as they did,

For I want to build Zion too!

I’ll try to have faith to do hard things

When that’s what He needs me to do.

When I hear of pioneer children,

I want to be strong for my day.

I’ll try to keep all the commandments

And be a true Latter-day Saint.

I’ll stand as a shining example

That others who follow will see,

I’ll be like those pioneer children;

The Lord is depending on me.
