The Pioneers and Pilgrims And Thanksgiving
We humbly thank our Father
For years filled with His love.
By faith our fathers trusted
His guidance from above.
By Word alone they conquered
The storms along the way;
Then thanked God for His blessings.
With natives joined to pray.
With cross of Christ before them
To this New World they came.
A challenge stood before them
To stake our Saviour's claim.
In buildings humble gathered
Your Church in these New Lands
Preached Jesus' love for sinners.
On this Your Church still stands!
Your Grace encircled 'round them
The Bible, Jesus' cross.
On eagles' wings they bore them
Though storms and waves did toss.
By Grace, by Faith, by Scripture,
By these Your Church was led.
By Baptism and Lord's Supper,
With these Your Church was fed.
May we in blest communion
With God the Three-In-One
Go forth in Great Commission,
Our goal: that souls are won.
What joy to meet in Glory
All those now gone before,
And with them praise our Saviour
In heaven for evermore. Don Knoll
