WE ARE THE REASON (by: David Meece)

INTRO :  [G2  Bm7][Am7  D7sus]
Verse 1:
G                  B7/F#              Em
As little children we would dream of Christmas morn
G7/D                C      G/B        Am
And all the gifts and toys we knew we’d find
B7        Em          Em/D           C#m7
But we never realised a baby born one blessed   night
Am9                  C/D    D7
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

Chorus 1:
G                       Am7
We are the reason that He gave His life
C/D           D7          Gsus              G D/F#
We are the rea son that He suffered and died
Em                Em7           Am             Am7
To a world that was lost, He gave all  He could give
C/D            D7          Gsus    G
To show us the rea son to live

Verse 2:
B7/F#              Em
As the years go by we learned more about gifts
G7/D             C      G/B       Am
And giving of ourselves and what that means
B7             Em             Em/D             C#m7
On a dark and cloudy day a man hung dying in the rain
Am9              C/D    D7
Because of love, because of love        (To Chorus 1 / Bridge)

BRIDGE:     F     Eb                          Bb/D
I’ve finally found a reason for li  ving,
Bbm                        Ab/C
It’s in gi  ving every part of my heart  to Him
Abm/B                Eb/Bb       Cm7
In all that I do, every word that I say
F7                    Bbsus       E  E7
I’ll be gi ving my all just for Him,   for Him

Chorus 2:
A                      Bm7/A
And we are the reason that He gave His life
D/E          E7            Asus           A  E/G#
We are the reason that He suffered and died
F#m               F#m7        Bm             Bm7
To a world that was lost  He gave all He could give
D/E            E7       F#m  F#m  D#dim
To show us the rea son to live
Bm7        E7           A2     A   Fmaj7   G6   A
He is my rea son to live
