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.
CHORUS:
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.
REPEAT CHORUS
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
And 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

    To me this song is what im going through everyday of my life i get so down but when i am worshiping the lord it like i can feel his arms reaching around me in an embrace that says i am here and i am gonna take care of u just leave everything to me and it will work out the way i entended it to go and he helps me to realize that without him i am blind to the wonders of his work because i can get so stuck on the things of this world.
