Temple Slipper Poem

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.
