The temple lifts us, exalts us, 
And stands as a beacon for all to see
Yes, it points us toward celestial glory
Our goal for eternity
At the temple:
The dust settles from our view
The fog and haze clearly lift
We can find our way anew
That through our problems we can sift
The temple is a peaceful, sacred place, 
Set apart from the burdens that we know
We find solemn covenants to embrace
Here the blessings of family sweetly grow
The baptismal font rests on 12 oxen
Like unto Israel’s days long gone
The opportunity for us has been given
To do the work for our kin passed on
In ordinance room we can review
God’s plan of happiness for us
Here we gain sweet impressions, too
Such that tears or words cannot express
The Celestial room is but a glimpse
Of eternal families, living in love
From the peace and  harmony one can sense
The presence of the Son and Father, above
In the temple we wear the brightest white
Symbolically, to show purity
Temporarily we leave the world behind
And experience serenity
