Lyrics by

Janie Worm

From the CD Higher Ground

Step by step, day by day, I am walking to a place that has no name
but it keeps on calling, keeps on reaching out to me.
And I hold my quiet intent. And I listen, for any subtle hint
of what’s unfolding and burning deep down inside of me.

Chorus:
And I hope, and I pray, that I can give all that’s asked of me today
with a heart that shines like the stars above.
And whether in sunshine or in rain, there’s only one thing that I hold as my aim
and that’s a heart that burns with a stronger desire for love.

Back and forth, round and round, I keep walking focused on the light and sound.
I try to surrender anything that’s troubling me.
I give the world my full attention; face every moment with creative invention,
looking out and looking deep inside of me.

Chorus:
And I hope, and I pray, that I can give all that’s asked of me today
With a heart that shines like the stars above.
And whether in sunshine or in rain, there’s only one thing that I hold as my aim
and that’s a heart that burns with a stronger desire for love.
(repeat)
…. I want a heart that burns with a stronger desire for love.

From Higher Ground, released 2003​.​
