You Raise Me Up – A Hymn for Troubled Days

Here is another great modern hymn (music by Rolf Løvland and lyrics by Brendan Graham), in one of the best interpretations I have heard by Celtic Woman group, from Ireland (find HERE more details about this true contemporary musical phenomenon).

The latest months have been quite difficult for me. This song has been a great comfort for me at this time, as I have listened to it tens of times.

Here are the 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.

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.

One thought on “You Raise Me Up – A Hymn for Troubled Days”

  1. Într-adevăr, o bună interpretare venită de la Celtic Woman. Am făcut cunoştinţă cu această piesă în interpretarea celor de la Selah, şi adeseori mi-a adus şi mie linişte şi pace în vremuri tulburi.
    Domnul Dumnezeu în care vă încredeţi să vă dea pace şi linişte atunci când furtuna loveşte.
