—————————————————

If you have turned up and nobody knows
If you havn’t announced you are here,
If you’ve been carried where the Spirit blows
Then you are a pioneer.

If there is no road map about where to go
If you have apprehension and fears,
If you are the first person there to sow
Then you are a pioneer.

It seems you’re alone and misunderstood
It seems there’s no one there to cheer,
It seems that support is not as good as it should
Then you are a pioneer.

You notice that some start to follow you
You start to accumulate some peers,
You notice they say that your message is new
Then you are a pioneer.

Those who follow will do bigger things
Because the direction you’ve steered,
Those who follow have grown bigger wings
Then you are a pioneer.

You know the Father has gone before
You know that you can’t stay here,
You know there’s a wilderness for you in store
Then you are a pioneer.

If there’s a fire burning deep within
To explore the next frontier,
To reveal the glory and honour of Him
Then you are a pioneer.
