Song Saturday Challenge – You Raise me Up

I’ve shared this song before, sung by different artists. This version is by the writer of the song, Josh Groban and I haven’t shared the words before and will do so here. This version is set to scenes from the movie, “Passion of the Christ” and the scenes lend extra meaning to the words of this beautiful melody.

This song came to mind because today is Sunday, my favorite day of the week. It is the day I am able to fellowship with others who invariably raise me up to be more than I can be.

Here are the words:

When I am down and, oh my soul, so wearyWhen troubles come and my heart burdened beThen, I am still and wait here in the silenceUntil you come and sit awhile with me.You raise me up, so I can stand on mountainsYou raise me up, to walk on stormy seasI am strong, when I am on your shouldersYou raise me up: To more than I can be.You raise me up, so I can stand on mountainsYou raise me up, to walk on stormy seasI am strong, when I am on your shouldersYou raise me up: To more than I can be.There is no life – no life without its hungerEach restless heart beats so imperfectlyBut when you come and I am filled with wonderSometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.You raise me up, so I can stand on mountainsYou raise me up, to walk on stormy seasI am strong, when I am on your shouldersYou raise me up: To more than I can be.You raise me up, so I can stand on mountainsYou raise me up, to walk on stormy seasI am strong, when I am on your shouldersYou raise me up: To more than I can be.This is a rather appropriate song for a Sunday, wouldn’t you say?

    • That is true. Some of the most inspiring and impactful songs are those that reach us on multiple levels. Most of us have probably been positively impacted by the kindness of someone else and it is one reason I admire people who routinely help others, knowing that they’ll never get something tangible in return, just the realization that they did something good.
