Artist(Band):Westlife Review The Song (91) Print the Lyrics

When I am down and, oh, my soul's 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.

[Instrumental break]

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,
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 to more than I can be.

A father's loving grace | Reviewer: edward | 8/24/13

I was brought up by my father who passed away in 1979-suddenly of a heart attack.
It completely reminds me of him the support he gave me in my studies in school,helping me to change from my drug snouting and smoking ways when I was 16,standing by me when I was jailed,not once but twice after assaulting a superior officer of the armed forces and having so much of faith in me that I would achieive his dream of becoming a medical doctor and helping those in need.
I became one in 1981 and have served my Lord and my profession with truth and stedfastness for the last 32 years,never turning back.I am grateful that this song was written and released it really speaks of his deep love for me and he saw so much in me at such a young age
.Hope every father reading this will always for give his children and always hope in them.I am blessed with 5 and I will ensure they are raised up to be more than I can be

Heart touching song | Reviewer: Jenny Princess | 7/10/13

This is a heart touching song, it encourages me whenever I'm down and makes me believe that God cares about me. Tnx to God for using Westlife to bring a heart touching song like this.


I always had an argument with my sister about where this song really belong,but after all I placed it to one of the best gospel songs I have ever heard in my life.This song really gives me encouragement when I feel discouraged and also disappointed,I keep on singing this song through such times. YOU RAISE ME UP LORD

This is more than a song,because when ever i play this song it lift my soul.
