What Builds Temples


What Builds Temples

Music from the Ensign

Gold and copper, steel and brass,
Concrete stone and mortar glass,
Boys Gold and copper, steel and brass,
Concrete stone and mortar glass,
Girls Wood of olive, cedar pine,
Linens emerald, blue and white
Unison Needle-work of silken twine  
Workmanship exceeding fine—
Build a temple to the Lord!

 

Truth and honor, hope and faith,
Virtue lovely, clean and chaste,
Boys Truth and honor, hope and faith,
Virtue lovely, clean and chaste,
Girls We believe and hope all things,
Many things we will endure,
Unison Spirits pure and so refined,
Workmanship exceeding fine—
Build a temple to the Lord!
