Daddy and daughter duo- Matt and Savanna Shaw are encouraging us today with a powerful duet of ‘You Raise Me Up.’
‘You Raise Me Up’ is a song composed by Secret Garden, the music was written by Rolf Løvland and the lyrics were composed by Brendan Graham.
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
It was Josh Groban’s version which shot the song into fame and made it to #1 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart in early 2004 and remained there for six weeks and was nominated for a 2005 Grammy award.
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
This song is a great one to listen to in times of difficulties and hardships because we all need someone to lean on and we depend on our family and friends but God is the only one who can truly relieve our pain and worries.
We need to trust in God and have complete faith in Him. ‘You Raise Me Up’ is a powerful hymn that can mend hearts and souls with its powerful lyrics.
