Around me, many are building
Temples of beauty and wealth
But what of a temple in Heaven?
Where will you live after death?

Are you building a temple in Heaven
To live in when this life is o'er?
Will you move to that beautiful city
And live with Christ evermore?

So long is the road that leads you
To that beautiful land up there
Is work on your temple completed?
Death may be lingering near

Are you building a temple in Heaven
To live in when this life is o'er?
Will you move to that beautiful city
And live with Christ evermore?

Are you building a temple in Heaven
To live in when this life is o'er?
Will you move to that beautiful city
And live with Christ evermore?
