Temple Slippers Poem

Temple Slippers Poem


I see you dressed in white……
Entering the Holy Temple.

I see you with a calling
a sacred calling.. to be a wife
and mother in Zion.

I see you at His altar….. Kneeling
there, with him…. The One with whom
you’ve chosen to share all Eternity.

These slippers are for you to wear
as you begin this journey… a valiant
servant in the kingdom….
That’s the You I see!!!!!!

Angel in White

What a beautiful and blessed sight
As I see you dressed all in white
Entering the temple of the Lord
Sacred and Holy, as is His Word

And in the wonder of it all
I see you accept the sacred call
A call you bear with the strength of a lion
That of a wife and mother in Zion

At the altar, your chosen one and you
I see kneeling together, both worthy and true
Your hearts being sealed in unity, as one
For eternity, long past time on earth is done

These slippers are a gift, for you to wear
As you begin your journey, a maiden fair
I know your valiant strength will see you through
For that is the angel I see in you

Temple Slippers

Sweet daughter of God, the path you tread
That’s brought you here today
Is but a tiny stepping stone
To help you on your way.

Keep in mind that Heavenly hosts
Will guard you day and night
If you’ll but follow the gospel plan
And strive to choose the right.
You’ll find no matter where you go,
Nor in spite of all you do
Satan watches your every move
In the hope of trapping you.

Be steadfast in the Young Women values
That you’ve grown to hold so dear
And as the Evil one rages on
You’ll have no cause to fear.

These precious temple shoes will serve
As a reminder to walk prayerfully
So your steps can guide you to the temple
To receive the blessings of eternity.

So, walk in truth and righteousness
Firmly grasping the iron rod
Simply follow in Christ’s footsteps
As He leads you home to God.
