A Temple of the Lord (Christoffersen)
In the shadow of the mountains, almost at our very door,
Now there stands a temple of the Lord.
If our hearts are truly seeking we will feel our faith increase
As we ponder in this place of pace.
We will work to be worthy to walk through the door of the house of the Lord
Where truth is revealed, where families are sealed.
The place we can claim God’s protection and shield, and where a hungry spirit can be filled.
Father, turn our hearts to others who have lived and gone before.
Bless them in the temple of the Lord.
We’ll perform our sacred duty an come forth with spirits bright—
Filled with an endowment of His light.
