Building on a Legacy of Faith


Building on a Legacy of Faith

Music for Choirs, Submitted Music (1998-2006)

In days of old, the pioneers moved westward

To gather with the Saints in a chosen land.

They labored hard to build up Zion in the mountains,

Committed to obey all the Lord’s commands.

Building on a legacy of faith, ever moving forward, ever seeking Zion.

Servants of our God, working hand in hand, ever building on a legacy of faith.

A clarion call:  “Go forth to ev’ry nation.”

The gospel shall roll forth, as Daniel prophesied.

New pioneers, with stalwart courage and obedience,

Have acted on this charge in places far and wide.

Building on a legacy of faith, ever moving forward, ever seeking Zion.

Servants of our God, working hand in hand, ever building on a legacy of faith.

Serve the Lord. Trust His word.  Make know His wondrous works in all the earth.

Learn of Him.  Call upon His name.  Prepare for the day when Christ will come again.

The time has come to stand a little taller, to demonstrate our faith in the living God,

To do the work of His Beloved Son, our Master, to follow in the ways that our Savior trod.
