Pioneers



My dear Lord I thank thee
For sending my way
Those things that will help me
Return to you some day
I read about the early pioneers
And watch Church History too
I do not understand their faith
They surely had in you
I love you dearly, my Lord
You are my God, my King
You suffered for us more than we can know
As a human being
I pray I will have the faith
Of the pioneers before me
Their strength and courage too
So one day I can return to Thee
