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.
