YOU RAISE ME UP

For a little time each day I listen to Celtic Music on Pandora internet radio.

There is a lot of beautiful music.

As I type this blog I am listening to How Great Thou Art - performed by David Nevue a piano soloist.

I believe that all music is inspired.  There is something that speaks to the heart of the composer as he or she creates.  When I listen to Celtic Music I sense a great love for Heavenly Father and his creations.  I believe that the singer/songwriters of Celtic Music have deep faith and are inspired to write meaningful lyrics and blend it with heavenly melodies.

You Raise Me Up by Rolf Lovland and Brendan Graham is one of those songs that touches me deeply.  When I listen to the words and music I have my own personal film strip of images of the Savior in my mind.  I suspect that Rolf Lovland got his inspiration from the Savior and his ministry as recorded in the New Testament.




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.


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.


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.

I LOVE ROLF! He is probably one of the best composers on earth...and it could be because he gets some divine help. :)
