Words by Marvin K. Gardner
Music by Vanja Y. Watkins
1. Thy temple shines with heav’nly light
Against the darkness of the night.
My heart rejoices at the sight.
I love Thy holy temple.
Each time I see Thy temple shine,
I think of promises divine
And all the blessings that are mine.
2. Thy temple stands majestic’ly,
Inviting me, reminding me
To be the best that I can be.
For temple marriage I’ll prepare.
I’ll seek Thy ordinances there.
With Thee I’ll covenant in prayer.
