    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!
