  • 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 a while 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

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains (stand on mountains)
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas (stormy seas)
    I am strong (I am strong), when I am on your shoulders (I am strong)
    You raise me up, to more than I can be

    You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains (stand on mountains)
    You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas (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 Writer/s: Brendan Graham, Rolf Lovland

    I like WESTLIFE Songs because Its just very relaxing and enjoying thier music you don't need to turn your speakers to 10 because thier voice is really clear and It's perfect in low volume
  • Larry from Coral Springs, FlThis song is so beautiful it can move you. ONe radio station I was listening in on which played this song commented it similar to Danny Boy
  • Robert from Boston, MaIt's amazing how many renditions of this song have been sung in many different parts of the world. Check out this duet by two students from the Philippines and Russia sung in Taiwan. Here's the link:

  • Ahmed Kakembo from Kampala, Ugandahi oh i like this song so much and i like those composed it every day when i wake up i just tune on 5this song i like it very much wonderful
  • Blake from London, United KingdomBeautiful song, unbelievable...there should be more like this around instead of the modern songs that revolve around sex, drugs, crime, rebelling etc...
    Love it.
  • Adrianna from Bloomington, InOh, neat; I didn't realise this song existed before Josh Groban's version. And yeah, I think this is so popular for American Idol because, if I remember right, it's one of Simon's favorites. So anyone who nails it gets bonus points with him. ;)
  • Marina from Seattle, WaThis song, I believe, has to be one of the most popular American Idol audition songs for males.
