You Raise Me Up!

This song is very beautiful, and I think it can be called a Christian song. This is a performance by David Döring, a pan flutist from Kazakhstan.

“Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.”

“But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.”

 – Psalm 41: 9 – 10

Lyrics: (from Sifa 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.

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.

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.

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.

You raise me up to more than I can be.

El Condor Pasa

Another kind of music that I like is Latin American music.

“El Condor Pasa” (The Condor Passes) is my favorite South American song.

David Döring, a pan flutist from Kazakhstan, plays the song very well:
