You Raise Me Up

There was this video I made on YouTube. It was the opening introduction for an anime. I changed its original song, and added “You Raise Me Up” performed by Celtic Woman. One user commented:

This is a Christian song.

That was the only comment to the video not related to the other comments it received. I think, this user may have checked my information and saw that I am from a Muslim country.

Anyways, I did not know it was a Christian song. I like its lyrics and I do not find anything not Islamic in it.

Here is the 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;
And 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.

If you are wondering, the video got removed because of copyright issues. It is a good reminder not to use the work of others.
