In My Heart

Share

Words and Music by Orin Johnson
based on a prayer by St. Teresa of Avila

To speak with you, to find my joy with you,
I do not need to raise my voice.  
Though I but whisper softly you hear me,
I carry you in my heart.

To seek you, to fly to you,
I need no wings to lift my soul.
I need just stillness to look deep within myself,
I carry you in my heart.

As with my brother, my sister, my best friend,
I may just be with you, just be with you,
tell you what troubles and ask you to help me;
I know, I know

That you are my God and Father and unworthy as I am
I know that I am what I am, your child.
I carry this in my heart.

I may just be with you, just be with you,

I know, I know

That you are my God and Father and unworthy as I am
I know that I am what I am, your child.
I carry this in my heart.
I carry you in my heart.
