Leave a comment


I’m the Salt of the earth
I’m the Salt of the earth
I carry the Flavour of God
I season the earth (Repeat)

I am the City built on a high hill
Like the yeast, I influence/leaven the world
I am rich, I am prosperous
I am blessed! (Repeat)

I am light of the world
Oh, I’m the light of the world
I shine the light, of God
Upon the earth (Repeat)

I am the city built on a high hill
Like the yeast, I influence/leaven the world
I am rich, I am prosperous
I am blessed! (Repeat)

I live to dominate
Surely there is agent made against
No divination against me
I am covered!

I’m highly favoured x4
In Jesus, Name! (Repeat)

Lift Jesus higher, Higher! x3
Higher! Higher! Higher! x2

I’m highly favoured x4
In Jesus Name! (Repeat)

I’m the Salt of the earth
I’m the Salt of the earth
I carry the Flavour of God
I season the earth (Repeat)

I am Light of the world
Oh I’m the Light of the world
I shine the Light of God
Upon the earth
