Avalon – We Are The Reason lyrics

As little children we would dream of Christmas morn
Of 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

*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

As the years went by we learned more about gifts
The giving of ourselves and what that means
On a dark and cloudy day a man hung crying in the rain
All because of love
All because of love


I finally found the reason for living
It's in giving every part of my heart to Him (every part to Him)
And all that I do every word that I say (you know I'll be saying)
I'll be giving my all just for Him, for Him (every thing for Him)

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 (all that he could give all)
To show us the reason to live

#He is the reason to live
(don't you know do you know the reason
That he came, oh he came to save us
When he gave his life for us) he suffered and died
To a world that was lost He gave everything (everything that He had He gave)
To show us the reason to live

*Chorus + # together
Don't know how I could thank Jesus all that he had all..
*Chorus + # together

    As parents, if we saw our children in despair and hurting, or going down the wrong path, wouldn't we do all that was possible to help them? God saw a "world that was lost" in sin and made a heart-wrendering decision to trade places with us--our wretched unrigteousness for his holy righteousness. He took upon himself our punishment, our abuse, our sin, our sicknesses and afflictions because he could not bear to see us suffer. He chose to trade places with us because of his great, all-consuming love for us. He even went to hell for us so that we would never have to. His love for us knows no bounds.

    First of all I'm very thankful to God the Father because He Gave Jesus Christ to save us even it is hard to do, God gave all He could Gave because He loves us so much, this song is very touching I'm very realised the goodness of God and I realised also that I'm a sinner; Yes it is true that we are the reason that Jesus gave His life, that He suffered and Die because of us. We knew that we are not worthy to God but God is merciful, humble and loving. As a Human I will not forget the goodness of God because we are nothing without God.

    "Oh, that kills me" words that came out to me... then I cried and cried... knowing that there is someone died for my sins so that I will be able to dwell to his kingdom. God is just, man is not. God is holy, man is not. God who is just won't allow sin to go unpunished - "We are the reason", He died to give life. He who knows no sin got punished.

    When one of his one hundred sheep lost, He left his ninety-nine sheep to find the 'lost' one.
    "world that was lost"
