When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

There is no life - no life without it's hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

You raise me up: To more than I can be.

    Reflection time: Last night my grandson graduated from grade 8.
    an exciting time in his life, so begins a new chapter in his life.
    this young man won 2 awards which made me very proud to be his nana, the term "you've come along way baby" fits him. His one award is "Salt of the Earth Award" only 2 people were picked from all the grade 8 schools in Hamilton it was for positive attitude, perseverance, dedication and commitment to their school community, so you can see why he makes me proud to me his nana.
    but.. the song they played for his class was you raise me up by selah.. moving
    I love being his nana.
    just had to share that... list to that song if you get a chance.
    and hello to my zellers family.

    I think it's like a song that says thank you to those that help. I sang this in a talent show once. and sang it right to my best friend and lifeboat in the storm. Love ya, Gabe.
