“The New Pioneers,” New Era, July 1982, 14–15

In Tune:

The New Pioneers

Moderately

1. Rolling along day after day,

Taming the sagebrush and sod,

Pioneers of yesterday

Building the kingdom of God.

They lived each day for a better tomorrow,

Growing thru trials and tears,

And coming closer to God each day

They were the pioneers.

2. We now go on day after day,

Following paths they have trod,

Pioneers of latter days

Building the kingdom of God.

We, too, must live for a better tomorrow,

Growing thru trials and tears,

And coming closer to God each day

We are the new pioneers.

3. Like pioneers in early days,

We take the Lord as our guide,

Pioneers who work to make

A world where the Lord can abide.

We live each day for a better tomorrow,

Growing thru trials and tears,

And coming closer to God each day

We are the new pioneers.

Building a world where the Lord can abide,

We are the new pioneers.
