Okay, one step at a time.

New --- size, background transparent
Text (Hello World) in white
Dialogs -> Layers -> New Layer
Filters -> Render -> Clouds -> Plasma
In the Layer Dialog,
Click on the text layer (I move it to the top, too (up arrow on the bottom))
Filters -> Map -> Bump Map
Select the Plasma layer as the bumpmap layer
play with the parameters
click okay
You can then (if you are done with it) delete the plasma layer (or just hide

I suspect that what may be tripping you up is the the GIMP doesn't get rid
of the bumpmap layer after bump mapping, and it may be higher in the stack
than your text.  Perhaps just deleting or hiding that layer will give you
what you want?
