When I See the Temple

By John V. Pearson

    When I see the temple,

    I think of Jesus Christ.

    I think of what He’s done for me

    And how He gave His life.

    I think of Heav’nly Father,

    And I know who I am.

    I know that I’m His child;

    I love His gospel plan.

    When I see the temple,

    I want to enter in.

    If this is Heavenly Father’s house,

    Could I go visit Him?

    I’ll keep the Lord’s commandments—

    I promise to be clean,

    So I may enter in His house—

    It’s where I want to be!
