“Light of the World”

Song Review

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.”

Matthew 5:14

Psalmist-Songwriter, Ingrid Stanley, released her debut single, “Light of the World,” on January 31, 2021. Light of the World is a divine treat of manna straight from heaven. The soulful opening strongly proclaims Matthew 5:14 and lovingly invites Jesus Christ, our Maker, not only to come to light our internal candle but to set it on fire and shine it bright for the world to see. The delivery of the song will uplift and take any listener on a journey to reflect upon the sacrificial offering of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The lyrics are filled with truth and powerful declarations such as:

“Jesus my Maker, Son from Heaven, one that gave his life for me. There is no one that is greater, there is no one that is stronger, there is no one that is mightier than Jesus my Savior.”

Ingrid Stanley, Psalmist-Songwriter

The anointing of the Lord in Ingrid’s voice gracefully brings upon a calmness that empowers the listener to rise and declare that they have been freed and are no longer bound to captivity. The sudden transition of the beat and change in tempo reveals how suddenly Jesus saves and sets us on fire to impact the world around us. As the Light of the World, our actions exemplify Jesus Christ and serves as a guiding path to God. Through her song, Ingrid encourages all to shine bright and not to allow our light to be concealed. For we are a city that is set on a hill that cannot be hidden. Be on the lookout for more songs from Psalmist-Songwriter, Glory Giver, Ingrid Stanley.

“The Light of the World by Ingrid Stanley provides a melodic tale of her path to Salvation. Her voice dances with the tempo as she provides true to life examples of the greatness found in Christ. Ingrid’s genuine love of Christ and the Holy Spirit project through her voice and provides Light to the World in these dark times.” – James A., Virginia

“Just wanted to say that the song was DOPE, and it relates to Matthew 5:14. Her voice is amazing! I could listen to this song over and over. I her voice is very soulful. I love the rap and that will grab the pre-teens/teens attention. I believe this song would be great for the praise dancers at any church. I just felt bright colors as the song plays while we praise God.” – Monty, Hawaii


Awesome song! You can hear the relationship she has with God as she sing. I love it! – Arlene H., Georgia

“Mrs. Ingrid’s song is describing the before and after she has accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. Before she accepted God her life was dim and dark, now her life is brighter than ever and she is living her best life. Mrs. Ingrid also talks about how Jesus is greater, stronger, and her savior and how no one else can compare themselves to Him; and we shouldn’t be ashamed to talk about Him and spread His word. This song is amazingly uplifting and it gives grace and praise to who Jesus our Savior is.” –Kirah A., Virginia

“We really enjoyed giving God praise while Worshipping to “Light of the World” by Sis. Ingrid Stanley. Powerful song, strong delivery & the lyrics was straight to the point and clear. We are the light in the city on a hill that cannot be hidden. Continue to boldly open your mouth and be the mouthpiece for Christ. Sis. Ingrid has such an amazing voice and I can’t wait to hear more of what Christ has in store through her anointed vessel. Strengthen us oh God so I may walk worthy before you and your people. That they may see our Good works and glorify you, Father. There is no one Greater than Jesus Christ the Savior. Keep looking ahead my Sister for eyes hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. We love you & be blessed my Sister.” – Elder & Letosha SaintJuste, North Carolina
