Salt & Light

Album: How Can It Be (2015)
  • Daigle recalled: "I wrote the song in my old apartment and thought, 'Ok Lord, I just have so much joy in my heart that I want to make sure that my life brings a beautiful song to you. I want my life to sing to you.'"
  • The song title refers to Matthew 5 v13-16, where, during his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus encourages his followers to be salt and light. He desires that his people affect others positively, just as salt seasoning brings out the best flavor in food and to let their light shine so that they are a beacon of truth.
