Pioneers! O Pioneers!
We the youthful sinewy races, all the rest on us depend,
Pioneers! O pioneers! (7-8)
We detachments steady throwing,
Down the edges, through the passes, up the mountains steep,
Conquering, holding, daring, venturing as we go the unknown ways,
Pioneers! O pioneers! (21-24)
O resistless restless race!
O beloved race in all! O my breast aches with tender love for all!
O I mourn and yet exult, I am rapt with love for all,
Pioneers! O pioneers! (37-40)
