When I am down and oh! my soul, so weary


Lyrics:
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.

It won’t embed, so you have to cut and paste it. Less a minute but so worth it

I think this is the favorite ‘You Raise Me Up” videos of mine.



Lyrics
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it OK
There’s always some reason to feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction or a beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
Let me be empty and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight

In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

So tired of the straight line, and everywhere you turn
There’s vultures and thieves at your back
The storm keeps on twisting, you keep on building the lies
That you make up for all that you lack
It don’t make no difference, escaping one last time
It’s easier to believe
In this sweet madness, oh this glorious sadness
That brings me to my knees

In the arms of the Angel far away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
In the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here

You’re in the arms of the Angel; may you find some comfort here
