Thy Holy Temple

    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.
    I love Thy holy temple.
    2. Thy temple stands majestically,
    Inviting me, reminding me
    To be the best that I can be.
    I love Thy holy temple.
    For temple marriage I’ll prepare.
    I’ll seek Thy ordinances there.
    With Thee I’ll covenant in prayer.
    I love Thy holy temple.
    I love Thy holy temple.
