The lyrics are so beautiful guys. The first verse says, "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." Then the chorus goes, "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." That then repeats one more time.
The second verse says, "There is no life, no life without its hunger. Each restless heart beats so imperfectly. But when you come and I am filled with wonder. Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity." Then the chorus repeats twice more, and then the song ends.
This song is so beautiful, because its message is so large. What its message is, is that whoever helps you through a situation, will help raise you up. In this song, it is so open to who you want it to be. It can be God, a family member, a friend, or even a stranger. In my case, I am writing it as God as the person, because today is Holy Saturday, and tomorrow is Easter Sunday, and this song goes so well with the whole theme of Easter.
I hope that you all enjoy the song, and all enjoy this Holy Week-weekend!

(I am also dedicating this post, and this song, to my Uncle Bill. He passed away this past Monday, from a hard-fought battle with depression and substance abuse, after losing his wife suddenly seven years ago. That is the reason that the posts have been very late this week, because I have been seeing my family members, and also going to things like the funeral home. It was a very sad time, but he is at peace now, and we are all happy, that he is now very, very happy.)
