You Raise Me Up

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 its 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.

Yes. I love this song. I can't get enough of it. I know I have heard it hundreds of times. Yet, I still cry sometimes when I hear it. The song is beautiful, yes. The message...well, awesome. I sing with it everytime it's on the radio. You better believe it was one of the first songs on my iPod (Selah's version). I love this song. It moves me. And, I just wanted to share it with y'all.
Have a great day!!!

Oh, I'm so in love with Josh Groban. I used to listen to this cd all the time so my roommates knew this song. One day my roommate was singing, "You life me up..." And I said, you've got the wrong words! Pretty soon it turned into a big joke, "You elevate me up!!!" ANYHOW, love the song. The end! :)

I guess this is why there are about 700 different types of music out there right?! lol
