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...

    No one person in my life has power to raise me up except my God.

    Don't know about anyone else, but, I sing it as a prayer. Jesus alone can raise me up in these ways and when comes "to sit awhile", I sense His presence and am refreshed, encouraged and raised up. He is my all and all and He raises me up "to be more than I can be" on my own. Thank You, Lord. YOU raise me up.

    well this is actually a hymn, which says that the singer is weary in his/her life and is down in life and is also going through a lot of troubles in life. And then he speaks to God and asks God to come and help him and that he would not even move until God himself comes and give him some comfort "and i am still and wait here in the silence, until you come and sit a while with me"

    in the second verse he speaks about how much God means to him in life and that when God comes around and give him comfort he sees a gimps of heaven in it.

    This song speaks to me in a very special way. I believe it’s about God’s omnipresence and omnipotence. It is so inspirational and spiritual. We can always rely on Him.

    You could interpret it in many ways. The Lord has been there in good times and bad. When we are tired, weary rely on him he helps us stand on those mountains. Again when I hear this I think of my own mother. The woman that was always there, a shoulder to cry on, and my encourager that life was worth living when I felt times were bad, she would remind me to look to the heaven for answers. When I was with her I felt like I was on top of the mountain. Now I can look to the heaven and know that both her and my Lord are still watching over me.

    It was written for the pop duo Secret Garden. It isn't a hymn and Groban didn't write it. He just covered it.

    The imagery in the song is about someone who has done the impossible with the person who had no power, and probably no courage to scale mountains and brave the seas.
    Though without His name, the lyrics are a fitting tribute to what God does and has done in many a person's life.

    This song makes the hair stand on my neck. It touches me more than most any song I have ever heard, at least as much.
