Hearts of fire creates love desire
Take you high and higher to the world you belong
Hearts of fire creates love desire
High and higher to your place on the throne

We've come together on this special day
To sing our message loud and clear
Looking back we've touched on sorrowful days
Future pass, they disappear

You will find peace of mind
If you look way down in your heart and soul
Don't hesitate 'cause the world seems cold
Stay young at heart 'cause you're never (never, never, ..) old at heart

That's the way of the world
Plant your flower and you grow a pearl
A child is born with a heart of gold
The way of the world makes his heart grow cold

    Wow i agree with what they sayin. I always thought even as a child that there was something special about this song eventhough i didn't know the words. It always somehow tuched me deep even as a child now that i'm over 40 it really moves me because of lifes experiences and the hope of something greater far greater than anything that i've had to endure here on earth.

    I agree completely with the above person (unregistered), on the
    Meaning of this song! "blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall
    See god... " (matthew 5:8)... I think of this song, whenever i am
    Deeply pained and troubled by the un-kindness in our world... I feel
    This song is like angels singing to us from the heavens, "hey, god
    Is love! Let your heart be aflame with pure love, no matter how
    Much the world treats you bad! " and yes, because we have been
    Through great sorrows, we will one day know great joys... I also
    Think of this song, when i wonder how people can be so cold, to
    Other humans and to animals... It's a blessing when we can keep
    Our heart of gold... I am so thankful this song was written, and i
    Wish there were more songs like this one!

    When you have a heart of fire it is pure. When gold is melted thru fire, it seprates the impuritys from the gold. And when you pursue a pure heart you are establishing your place on the throne of god according to the book of revalation chapter 4. And all gods people will be there on that speical day,we will be singing and shouting our message, worthy is the lamb, to recive all power majisty and glory and honor, we will look back on sorrowful days, because jesus christ will judge us for our works on earth. And jesus will forgive us for not doing what we should have done. Yo0u will find peace of mind by heeding to the holy spirit as it touches your heart and soul, so don't hesitate to share gods love because this world is full of angry, sad, tired, and fed up people that are lost. That's just the way of the world, but you can make a diffrence,just as a farmer that plants a small crop he has a small harvest, but with a large crop he will recive abundence. If you bring up a child in the way of god his heart will stay pure as gold, and the way of the world makes his heart grow cold. This is my interpation of this song, i enjoy music very much and i enjoy life on this earth. We all have a purpose in this life, and when we learn to help others we make god smile. I hope my meaning to this song helps. God bless everyone
