The Pioneers

Our fathers toiled, but in a glorious fight,
The God of nations led them by the hand;
With pillared smoke by day and fire by night
They wrought like heroes in their promised land;
The wilderness was conquered by their might,
They made for God the marvel He had planned{{subst:--}}
A land of homes where toil could make men free,
The final masterpiece of Destiny.

Peter M Arthur.
