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.

[Instrumental break]

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.

    The words are very meaningful when sung to jesus, the one and only saviour of the human race. He alone is willing and able to lift each and every person up, if we invite him into our life. We only have to ask. The song has a beautiful god given melody too.

    This is the kind of songs that makes me cry. It really encourages me to have more faith. And sometimes it also reminds me of my uncle. Actually. He died. I really felt sorry for my cousins. He didn't die cuz of a sickness he was shot. :( and he could've given much more fun times with his daughters. What would you feel if you lost someone so precious?!. :(

    Nothing is much more powerful than your love ones?. The ones who make you happy?. The ones who.

    This could be taken from different point of view. Ether as if its god raising us on his hands and letting us go through the hardships we have. The other one could be taken into the perspective as if it is about someone close to us who raises us up in times of hardship.

    It's so uplifting! What a gift. For those who might not share the faith, it could still mean something to them too. Instead of jesus it could also represent someone who has always been there for you, no matter what. Jesus is in them too and all of us if we let him in!
