A Song for Jesus
King David did not strum this upon his harp, nor King Solomon pen it for the pages of Psalms. It has raised no Cathedral roof nor been printed in any Hymnal - BUT IT COULD BE!
"You Raise Me Up" was written and sung to embrace a deceased mother, but I would sing it to bless my living brother - Jesus!
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.
The joy of Jesus is my strength, for He is in my heart and I in His.
He raises me up... To more than I can be.
The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song... (Is 12:2b)
