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 in the TV-show “En kveld hos Kloppen” on TV2 16.05.2016

In the TV-show “En kveld med Kloppen” (An evening at Kloppen’s place), Solveig Kloppen invites three famous people she is curious about and fascinated by to her own home for a pleasant evening. Solveig is a dab hand at parties and good mood, but she is hopeless when it comes to cooking. She therefore offers the house and wine, while her guests contributes with a simple dish each.

Alexander was the one who made the main course, and here is  the recipe:
