You Raise Me Up

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 song I was taught in Fotang. I generally don’t like to learn songs in Fotang. I always prefer philosophical talking rather than singing songs, praising deities, etc. This song is different. They say it’s not a holy song but when I sing this song, I feel encouraged inside. This song echoes inside me. It’s not to praise someone else outside. It’s praising the self, consciousness, own intellect.
