We Are The Reason

1) As little children, we would dream of Christmas morn,
and all the gifts and toys we knew we’d find,
but we never realized a baby born one blessed night
gave us the greatest gift of our lives.

Ref.: We were the reason that he gave his life,
we were the reason that he suffered and died.
To a world that was lost, he gave all he could give,
to show us the reason to live.

2) As the year went by we learned more about gifts,
giving of ourselves, and what that means.
On a dark and cloudy day, a man hung crying in the rain,
because of love, because of love.

Ref.:

Bridge: I’ve fin’lly found a reason for living,
it’s in giving ev’ry part of my heart to him.
In all that I do, ev’ry word that I say,
I’ll be giving my all just for him, for him.

Ref.: And we are the reason that he gave his life,
we are the reason that he suffered and died.
To a world that was lost, he gave all he could give,
to show us the reason to live.
He is my reason to live.
