The Lord Gave Me a Temple


Friend Magazine, 2016/08 Aug

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.
