You Raise Me Up

A friend of mine shared this song to me through whatsapp to cheer me up today.

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
當我失落的時候,噢,我的靈魂,感到多麼的疲倦;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
當有困難時,我的心背負著重擔,
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
然後,我會在寂靜中等待,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
直到你的到來,並與我小坐片刻。

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
你鼓舞了我,所以我能站在群山頂端;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
你鼓舞了我,讓我能走過狂風暴雨的海;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
當我靠在你的肩上時,我是堅強的;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.
你鼓舞了我…讓我能超越自己。

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
你鼓舞了我,所以我能站在群山頂端;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
你鼓舞了我,讓我能走過狂風暴雨的海;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
當我靠在你的肩上時,我是堅強的;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.
你鼓舞了我…讓我能超越自己。

There is no life – no life without its hunger;
沒有一個生命 — 沒有生命是沒有渴求的;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
繹動的心不安地跳動著;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
但是當你來臨的時候,我充滿了驚喜,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.
有時候,我覺得我看到了永恆。

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
你鼓舞了我,所以我能站在群山頂端;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
你鼓舞了我,讓我能走過狂風暴雨的海;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
當我靠在你的肩上時,我是堅強的;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.
你鼓舞了我…讓我能超越自己。

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
你鼓舞了我,所以我能站在群山頂端;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
你鼓舞了我,讓我能走過狂風暴雨的海;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
當我靠在你的肩上時,我是堅強的;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.
你鼓舞了我…讓我能超越自己。

Although this song was originally composed by Secret Garden which is related to New Age, but I still consider it nice because the lyrics also meet the way how God ‘raises’ people up, saving them for slavery of sins and isolation.

“You Raise Me Up” is a song that was originally composed by the Secret Garden duo. The music was written by Secret Garden’s Rolf Løvland and the lyrics by Brendan Graham. After the song was performed early in 2003 by the Secret Garden and their invited lead singer, Brian Kennedy, the song only became a minor UK hit. The song has been recently recorded by more than a hundred other artists, one of which is Josh Groban. He popularized the song later in the year it was originally composed and performed by the Secret Garden and Brian Kennedy, and became a hit in the United States. The band Westlife then popularized the song in the United Kingdom two years later.[1] The song You Raise Me Up is sung as a contemporary hymn in church services.
