Verse one:
          G                  D/F#                 Em
As little children, we would dream of Christmas morn
   D                  C       G/B       Am
Of all the gifts and toys we knew we’d find
         B7       Em          Em/D               A7/C#
But we’d never realized a baby born one blessed night
            Am7                D
Gave us the greatest gift of our lives

Chorus one:
G                       Am
We were the reason that He gave His life
Dsus        D               G
We were the reason that He suffered and died
      Em                          Am7
To a world that was lost, He gave all He could give
    D                   G
To show us a reason to live

Verse two:
       G                 D/F#                Em
As the years went by, we learned more about gifts
     D              C       G/B        Am
The giving of ourselves and what that means
      B7              Em            Em/D            A7/C#
On a dark and cloudy day, a man hung crying in the rain
           Am7               D
Because of love, because of love

Bridge:
  D#                            Bb  
I finally found the reason for living
         C#                      G#
It’s in giving ev’ry part of my heart to Him
   B                     D#
In all that I do, ev’ry word that I say
        F                      Bb
I’ll be giving my all just for Him
    E
For Him

Chorus two:
    A                      Bm
And we are the reason that He gave His life
Esus       E               A
We are the reason that He suffered and died
     F#m                            Bm
To a world that was lost, He gave all He could give
    E                     F#m    B
To show us the reason to live
D        E         A
He is my reason to live
