Original video
Walk me over this horizon
Let the sun's light warm my face
Once again the times are changing
Once again I've lost my way
While the words of ancient poets
Fall like dust upon my shoes
Greed has robbed me of my vision
Turned my heart from higher truths

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe, in honor bound
And take my heart to higher ground

I have walked too long in darkness
I have walked too long alone
Blindly clutching fists of diamonds
That I found were only stones
I would trade the wealth of ages
For a warmer hand to hold


The path of life is narrow
But it leads to streets of gold

So take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe, in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground

In this world we move through shadows
Never sure of what we see
While the truth abides between us
Come and share the truth with me

Take my hand and lift me higher
Be my love and my desire
Hold me safe in honor bound
Take my heart to higher ground
Higher ground
