Be the Salt

Based in part on Matthew 5:13:

House of Prayer Dockside - Listening To Her Silent Prayer

Be the Salt
by Michael Doyle

The God who was faithful then 
Will be as faithful now as when
When He made Goliath fall
Shaking down all the walls

The salt of earth made pure
The prevention and our cure
Thanks be to the Holy One
God, Holy Ghost and Son

We need to leave isolation
Leaving huddles for acculturation
Spreading the good news 
Not just leaving it on our pews

In God's hands are our keys
To save our society's sanctity
We have been called out
The Church needed without doubt

Standing in faith not selling out
Makes me want to sing and shout
That we must live to who we are
Always following that Holy star

Sold out saints remaining silent
Fearful of being treated violent
Forgetting to stand up for what is right
Fall out as it will let's be the light

Let's be sanctified with the truth
And teach this to our youth
Influencing how things should be
Feeling so humble before the Holy

I wouldn't even know me 
Were the Spirit not in me
I want the world to hear me
That is the way path of all holy
