    I Love to See the Temple

    Thoughtfully

    1. I love to see the temple.

    I’m going there someday

    To feel the Holy Spirit,

    To listen and to pray.

    For the temple is a house of God,

    A place of love and beauty.

    I’ll prepare myself while I am young;

    This is my sacred duty.

    2. I love to see the temple.

    I’ll go inside someday.

    I’ll cov’nant with my Father;

    I’ll promise to obey.

    For the temple is a holy place

    Where we are sealed together.

    As a child of God, I’ve learned this truth:

    A fam’ly is forever.
