This song was written by Heather Norberg and Pamela Sortomme for a trek in Idaho. The focus of the song is to remember those who sacrificed and followed the commandment given to gather in Zion. Those pioneers who were willing to make their way to Zion even if it was by walking and pushing a handcart with just a few of their belongings. This quote from President Hinckley inspired the lyrics.
” I will never get over being thankful to them; I hope that you never get over being thankful to them. I hope we will always remember them…. Let us read again and again, and read to our children or our children’s children, the accounts of those who suffered so much.”
President Gordon B. Hinckley
