A New Hymn for Sunday

Here is the hymn I wrote for the lectionary passage for this Sunday (Matthew 5: 13-20).

Salt and Light

Salt and light our Saviour calls us,

Salt and light so we must be,

Sharing hope and truth with others

With our love and empathy.

 

 

Salt and light our Saviour named us,

Pure and honest we must be,

Consecrate our days to Jesus

So God’s kingdom we will see.

 

 

Salt and light we must be bearing,

Pain and hatred to confound.

It’s God’s love that we are sharing;

Spread it gently all around.
