Song: The Reason For the World
Artist: Matthew West
Album: The Story of Your Life

This song is originally played on the piano, but I listened to it and created a 
tab by ear. It might not be perfect; if you think something's wrong, please feel 
free to leave a comment!

       C                                                    
There are no words in times like these
      F
When tears won't hide the tragedies
     Am                G              F
And all you want is a reason for the world

    C
No comfort in the greeting card
       F
Cause God is good, but life's still hard
           Am                G             F
And your heart just wants a reason for the world

Chorus
               Am/C       (1st chorus only; all others C)
But maybe the reason for the pain
            G
Is so that we would pray for strength
               F
And maybe the reason for the strength
            G
Is so that we would not lose hope
                Am
And maybe the reason for all hope
           G/B
Is so that we could face the world
         Am     G        F                           C     F         Am G F
And the reason for the world is to make us long for home, home

For God so loved your broken heart
He sent His son to where you are
He died to give a reason for the world

So lift your sorrows to the One
Whose plan for you has just begun
And rests here in the hands that hold the world

Chorus

                    Am
Well I know you're past the point of broken
          G
Surrounded by your fear
              F
I know your feet are tired and weary
           G
From the road you walk down here
           C
But just keep your eyes on heaven
               G
And know that you are not alone
            Am       G          F
Remember the reason for the world

No ear has heard, no eye has seen
Not even in your wildest dreams
The beauty that awaits beyond this world

When you look into the eyes of grace
And hear the voice of mercy say,
"Child, welcome to the reason for the world."
