Teach Me about the Temple Sheet Music & Lyrics
Teach Me about the Temple was published in the October 2017 Friend magazine. The lyrics reiterate that children have an innate desire to learn about the temple:
I see the light of the temple at night.
As it shines it reminds me
I must prepare so that I can go there,
And I need someone to guide me.
I see the light of the temple at night,
And its glow is a symbol,
Helping me think of the safety and peace
That come from the holy temple.
Please teach me about the temple.
Please show me how to prepare.
Then all of my life I will try
To be worthy to enter there.
Please teach me about the temple.
I want to know so that someday I may go.

- Next, post the endowment room page on the board. Read what it says about the endowment room. Then post the words to the chorus and sing it.
- Third, post the sealing room page on the board. Read what it says about the sealing room. Then post the words to the 2nd verse and sing it.

Afterward, sing the entire song a whole.
Pass out Finger Lights
Optionally, pass out finger lights or small flashlights to the Primary. Find more details on where to get and use finger lights in singing time.
Turn off the lights so the room is darkened. Shine the lights on each room in the temple as you sing its associated verse or chorus.
Bear testimony of the importance of the temple and the covenants and blessings that are received when we are worthy to attend.
