There is a song originally performed by Secret Garden and made popular by Josh Groban. The song is called “You Raise Me Up,” and while I am not sure of the specific etymology of the words, the song does borrow on scriptural images that are appropriate as an Easter meditation. For most of us in the Christian tradition, this is the Easter season. I would like to offer the refrain as a reflection of how Christians understand Jesus and the power of his resurrection. Each of the stanzas reflect an image of Jesus found in the Gospel and the grace he offers to all.
