It took incredible faith for the Mormon Pioneers to make their arduous trek across the plains.
The same is true for each of us. It takes incredible faith to make our arduous trek through life.
Every footstep requires faith.
Every moment demands patience.
Every journey necessitates fortitude.
When the going gets tough, we step up to the occasion. We pull ourselves up by the bootstraps. We step into our confidence.
Even when it’s hard.
That’s what the pioneers did. And that’s what we can do.
FAITH IN EVERY FOOTSTEP
A marvelous work has begun to come forth among all the children of men.
O ye that embark in the service of God, give heart, mind and strength unto him.
For prophets have spoken and angels have come to lift the world from sin,
That Christ may reign over all the earth and bless his gathered kin.
With faith in every footstep, we follow Christ, the Lord,
And filled with hope through his pure love, we sing with one accord.
Those marvelous Saints who embraced this great work and shared it in lands far and near,
Who gave all their heart, mind, and strength to the Lord with wisdom and vision so clear,
Now stand as examples of virtue and faith, of souls prepared to hear,
Of knowledge sure, born of humble heart, and love that banished fear.
If we now desire to assist in this work and trust in our sickle with might,
If we will embark in the service of God and harvest in fields that are white,
Our souls may receive the salvation of God the fullness of his light,
That we may stand, free of sin and blame, God’s glory in our sight,
