Song background:

I wanted to create a piece about the temple that could grow with my children. There are very few children's songs about the temple, and fewer still that seem relevant as they mature into adults. "The House of the Lord" is simple yet elegant (with 2 countermelodies, similar to "A Child's Prayer", a song still meaningful to me as an adult) to appeal to children, youth, and adults alike. It is about what goes on inside the temple, the feelings we can feel there, and reasons we should go back again and again.

Lyrics: In the House of the Lord all is quiet
And the Spirit speaks peace to my soul
There I learn of God's plan for his children
With the keys that make families whole
In the House of the Lord I find Jesus
And the truths of his gospel restored
I make promises there, pour my heart out in prayer
I belong in the House of the Lord.

God commanded us anciently
To build temples to honor his name
Now and for all eternity
We are blessed when we follow his ways
I can go to God's holy house
If I ever feel lost or unsure
And find answers to my questions
There in the House of the Lord
