THE REASON FOR THE WORLD
Matthew West

[INTRO]
  C  F  G  C

[VERSE 1]
         C                                                     
   There are no words in times like these
         F  
   when tears don't hide the tragedies
       G                               C
   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
            G                                 C
   And your heart just wants a reason for the world

[CHORUS]
                   F            
   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
   Is so that we could face the world
            Dm        C   F                             
   And the reason for the world... 
                              C     F     G    C
   ...is to make us long for home, home, home

[VERSE 2]
        C               
   For God so loved your broken heart
       F
   He sent His son to where you are
           G                             C
   And He died to give a reason for the world

      C             
   So lift your sorrows to the One
          F
   whose plan for you has just begun
        G                                     C
   And rest here in the hands that hold the world

[CHORUS]
                   F            
   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
   Is so that we could face the world
            Dm        C   F                             
   And the reason for the world... 
                              C     F     G    C
   ...is to make us long for home, home, home

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

[VERSE 3]
       C                            
   No ear has heard, no eye has seen
        F
   not even in your wildest dreams
       G                                C
   The beauty that awaits beyond this world
   
             C                        
   When you look into the eyes of grace
        F
   and hear the voice of mercy say,
            G                              C
   "Child, welcome to the reason for the world."
