You are the light of the world!
You are the light of the world!
But if that light is under a bushel,
( brrr ) It's lost something kind of crucial.

You've got to stay bright to be the light of the world!

You are the salt of the earth!
You are the salt of the earth!
But if that salt has lost it's flavor
It ain't got much in it's favor.

You can't have that fault and be the salt of the earth!

So let your light so shine before men
Let your light so shine!
So that they might know some kindness again,
We all need help to feel fine! (Let's have some wine!)

You are the city of God!
You are the city of God!
But if that city's on a hill,
It's kind of hard to hide it well.

You've got to stay pretty in the city of God!

So let your light so shine before men
Let your light so shine!
So that they might know some kindness again,
We all need help to feel fine! ( Let's have some wine! )

You are the light of the world!
You are the light of the world!
But the tallest candlestick,
Ain't much good without a wick!

You've got to live right to be the light of the world!
