You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban

When I’m down and oh my heart’s so weary
When troubles come and my heart burden be
But I am still and wait here for silence
Until you come and sit a while with me

You raise me up so I can stand on mountain
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas
I am strong when I keep on your shoulder
You raise me up to more than I can be.
