You Raise Me Up

 (Brendan Graham) (C)
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.


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.
