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.

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.

    This is the song that my dad and I are going to dance to at my wedding for the Father, Daughter dance. It is such a beautiful song and everytime I hear it, it makes me want to cry because that's how I feel for my friends and family. It was like Josh took the words right out of my mouth and put them into a beautiful song that only he can sing and make anyone cry their eyes out. Josh Groban is an amazing singer and actor (if you've ever seen him in Chess the Musical) and he is my all time favorite singer in the whole world. My whole family loves this song and I sing it all the time without even realizing it because I love it so much. I sang this song for my boyfriend (now fiance) on our 2 year aniversery and we both cryed. When I was done singing and everyone was done wiping away tears, he got down on his knee and popped the question and ofcourse I said "YES!" This song means alot to me. I love Josh Groban (and it doesn't hurt that he's pretty cute)!

    True, He cares for us, and desires us to cast all our cares upon Him.
    True again, He loved us while we far off and as yet dead in our sin.
    But He has loved us even enough to send His own Son to pay the ransom for us, to atone for our sin, and it is only through believing in Him Whom the Father sent that we can even have the hope of one day standing in His presence.
    "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse."

    A truly meaningful song and one of the most phenomenal that I have ever heard. The lyrics are deep and thoughtful and although it doesn't contain many words within a single line but each paragraph carries a thousand meaning. Josh Groban delivered it perfectly and it touched many peoples' hearts. I love this song a lot and to have it being sung by Josh is an icing on the cake.

    This sing touches me personally right down to the core. During my bad times I was having a couple of weeks ago (my two best friends died, family problems, friend drama, stress) I played this song over and over and over and it just really helped me thru them. Josh groan is inspiring, all knowing, and just a great guy. His songs have helped me thru so many things that I didn't think I could get thru.

    This song is the best song in the world. It has very few words and it repeats but the song has more life and meaning than any other that I have listen to. Me and my sister love this song I can only hear it every once in a while because it makes me want to cry. This is so a father daughter dance and I know for a fact it will be played at my wedding this is truly music to my ears and every one else who likes slow powerful and of course who knows what music is kind of a person.
