To all who played any part, no matter how small, in making my year special, I thank you with all my heart.
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.
Good job I’m almost on my way to bed or I would have that tune playing in my head all day – as it my inner voice is going up and down to the lyrics of the second verse. What on earth am I saying – that tune will be going round and round in my mind as I’m trying to relax and go to sleep LOL
Merry Christmas Grannymar from us Down Under – I’m sure 2015 will be a good year for you and your family
Cathy, I hope 2015 will prove a good year for all of us!
Beautiful song to go with your sentiment, GM. Hope the tail-end of 2014 has a few small surprises for you. Thanks for your presence.
I like this version of the song. Nancy, each new day brings the hope and possibility of a surprise! Thank you for your constant support through the year.
My pleasure! I always enjoy my visits here and to Hour House.
Beautiful, Marie. Thank you for sending it on. Merry Christmas!
Glad you enjoyed it, Al. May your year ahead bring contentment and good health!
I have been listening to my favorite version: http://youtu.be/9bxc9hbwkkw
