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.
