A house of faith,
the Kirtland Temple,
shined with teardrop
shards of light.
Broken glass, china crushed,
revealed Saints’ sacrifice.
A house of glory
blazed like fire, gold,
pure snow, the noonday sun.
He showed His face to humble men,
His voice like mighty oceans—
“Lift up your heads and rejoice.”
A house of God,
bathed in light, grandeur
beneath a star-splashed sky,
teaches of eternities—
reveals His sacrifice.
