1. 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.
2. 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 brightAnd in celestial glory forever live in light.
