Alexander Rybak and Johnny Logan with the legendary song “You Raise Me Up”

YOU RAISE ME UP

( Music: Rolf Løvland. Lyrics: Brendan Graham)

Lyrics as they are sung by Johnny Logan in this performance

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 the hunger;
Each beaten heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, it feels 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’ To more than I can be.

Alexander’s violin version of Jamala’s ESC winner song “1944”.

Alexander Rybak’s  beautiful violin version of the 2016 Eurovision winner song “1944” by Jamala.

Alexander’s violin version of “1944” was meant to be performed at an ESC event during Eurovision in Kiev May  2017. An event where the invited artists would perform their version of an Ukrainian song. Unfortunately the event was canceled only a few weeks before it was going to happen. 

Luckily we can enjoy this beautiful violin version of “1944” on YouTube
