You Raise Me Up Lyrics

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...

    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.

    God is Good and inspires us to be a better person. He gives us strength and wisdom and with Him all things are possible!

    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.
