Two Favorite Songs

I was searching in YouTube for a video clip to be used as introduction to my sermon, when I came across two old favorites.

The first one “Bridge over Troubled Water” is a secular pop song released in 1970 by Simon and Garfunkel, but can be thought of as the Lord’s words to His own who are wearied and troubled.

The second “You Raise Me Up” is originally also a secular song, but often sung as a contemporary hymn, with the singer offering praise to the Lord. I like the Josh Groban version (US) best but the Westlife version (UK) is also very good.

The two songs fit well together as a pair when you need strength. Enjoy!
