We Are the Reason - David Meece

G
As little children
B                Em
We would dream of Christmas morn
Dm7      G7       C       G
And all the gifts and toys we know we’ll find
B7        Em
But we never realised
D               Cmaj7
A Baby born one blessed night
Am           D
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

G              Em       Am      D
We are the reason that He gave His life
Am             D   G
We are the reason He suffered and died
Em
To a world that was lost
Am
He gave all He could give
D7             G
To show us a reason to live

G
As the years went by
B          Em
We learn more about gifts
Dm7    G7     C
The giving of ourselves
G
And what that means
B7       Em
On a dark and cloudy day
D                  Cmaj7
A Man hung crying in the rain
Am               D
Because of love, because of love

Eb                Bb
I’ve finally found a reason for living
Bbm                        Ab
It’s in giving every part of my heart to Him
Abm                 Eb            Cm
In all that I do, every word that I say
F                   Bb         E
I’ll be giving my all just for Him, for Him

A            F#m      Bm        E
We are the reason that He gave His life
Bm            E    A
We are the reason He suffered and died
F#m
To a world that was lost
Bm
He gave all He could give
E7             A
To show us a reason to live
D        E          A
He is my reason to live.

The first chorus should be "We WERE the reason". Second time round, it changes to "We ARE the reason".

I'd suggest buying the sheet music because the chords are substantially nicer :) Eg, for this line (in the original key of Bb):

Am7(b5) D Gm
We would dream of Christmas morn

Cheers,
:D
