    (Simplified)

    Music: The Lord Gave Me a Temple

    The Lord gave me a temple to live within on earth.

    Once in Heaven I was spirit, but I left my home at birth.

    I’ll make my temple brighter; I’ll keep my spirit free.

    My body is the temple my Father gave to me.

    If I keep my body clean and pure and habit-free,

    I may in Father’s temple claim blessings promised me.

    On resurrection morning, I’ll take my body bright

    And in celestial glory forever live in light.
