Last year, I remember sharing about how simple illustrations (aka cartoons) can bring forth theВ message of Christmas in a innocent yet powerful way. This year, I having a chat with a sister this morning and she was sharing about starting a carolling session in her office this evening; how she was frantically typing out the lyrics (yes, I did tell her to download straight from the Net..); what carols she was gonna pick, etc….she also shared that one of her favourites was We are the Reason (although she didn’t think her other staff would sing it..), a beautiful classic about why Jesus came into this world and died for us.
So I thought it would be fitting that I would share the meaningful lyrics of this song with all of you this Christmas – may this Christmas hold a special meaning in your heart as you focus, celebrate and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas!
We are the Reason
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’ve finally found the reason for living
It’s in giving every part of my heart to Him
In all that I do every word that I say
I’ll be giving my all just for Him, for Him
He is my reason to live
Have a Merry and Joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year 2006 ahead!
For all multipliers driving home for the long break, do stay alert and focussed on the road, and come back in one piece! See you guys next year! God bless.
Number of the Day:
