Lyrics

  1. 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. 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 bright
    And in celestial glory forever live in light.
