I Can Be a Modern-Day Pioneer


1. 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!
