All the past we leave behind

All the past we leave behind:
We take up the task eternal, and the burden, and the lesson,
conquering, holding, daring, venturing, so we go the unknown ways,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

Not for delectations sweet,
not the riches safe and palling, not for us the tame enjoyment;
never must you be divided, in our ranks you move united,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

All the pulses of the world,
all the joyous, all the sorrowing, these are of us, they are with us;
we today's procession heading, we the route for travel clearing,
Pioneers! O pioneers!

On and on the compact ranks,
with accessions ever waiting, we must never yield or falter,
through the battle, through defeat, moving yet and never stopping,
Pioneers! O pioneers!
