Chorus:
We are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
If the salt has lost its flavor it has lost all its worth.
We are the light of the world and the salt of the earth.
If the light can't pierce the darkness then the gloom won't disperse.

1. Like salt from a shaker shaking enlivens the taste,
the message that we are taking is seasoned with grace. (chorus)

2. May the Spirit of God burn brightly in our lives every day,
like a beacon of light that show the life the truth and the way. (chorus)

3. He who binds us together sends us out into the world
to bring a message of light and love and wisdom from His words. (chorus)
