Lyrics: Leave behind all you have known. <br/>Come to a land so bleak and lonely <br/>no one wants it for his own. <br/>Pray in faith; call it Nauvoo. <br/>Raise up a city and a temple <br/>from your love and labor too. <br/>Give it everything that you are <br/>and everything you ever hoped you?d be, <br/>then watch it turn to ashes as you flee. <br/> <br/>(Chorus) <br/>O Pioneers, <br/>your children still remember. <br/>Through all the years, <br/>you've lived in every heart. <br/>You are a light, <br/>and your light will shine for <br/>all of us, evermore. <br/>In every step you've marked the way. <br/>Now I'll blaze my trail today. <br/> <br/>Pushing on, through every storm, <br/>striving with pain and cold and hunger <br/>to keep children well and warm. <br/>Some were saved; many were lost. <br/>Led by a prophet, you were faithful, <br/>serving God at any cost. <br/>And you spoke of Zion by day, <br/>while dreams of Zion filled your souls by night, <br/>until you reached that place where all was right. <br/> <br/>(Chorus) <br/> <br/>Here I am; what shall I do? <br/>Lost in a world of sin and sorrow, <br/>am I called to Zion too? <br/>Can I blaze a trail of my own? <br/>Putting my faith in every footstep, <br/>will I reach my heav'nly home? <br/>With your courage as my sword, <br/>and a Lord who would not let us fail. <br/>I find my strength and know I will prevail. <br/> <br/>(Chorus)
