TEMPLE SQUARE


Tiny twinkling lights cover the tree branches
Creating a fairyland of colors as we walk by
This is Temple Square at Christmastime
Dazzling to the senses, touching the soul

Yet the centerpiece is the granite temple
Bathed in white light, a symbol of the season
Christmas celebrates Christ-his life and mission
Families mingle with others ah-ing and ooh-ing
At the grandeur, while a full moon overhead
Reflects light on the joyful scene

Huddled in warm coats, gloves and scarves
We all move quickly to see everything
Smiles on our faces show our enjoyment
This is truly what Christmas is about
Family, love and awe for the Christ child.

A perfect pageant caps the evening
“Savior of the World” recalls the birth
Life, death, and resurrection of the Lord
In music, drama, dance and song
Thank you Father for your wonderful gift
