You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

What do you think?

According to Wikipedia,  ‘You Raise Me Up’ was written by Rolf Løvland  and Brendan Graham in 2001. It was performed for the very first time at the funeral of Rolf Løvland’s mother. He said “there’s something about the song people are embracing – which becomes emotionally strong. I believe people think of it as a song they use for their own stuff.” In other words, he predicts it will become as popular as ‘Amazing Grace’ to be played as a hymn at church and for funerals and memorials.

The song has been recorded by over 100 artists, but it was Josh Groban who made it popular in 2003.

Lyrics

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
Songwriters: Brendan Graham / Rolf Lovland
