Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

Jesus is the Reason

 Jesus is the Reason

 “She will bear a son, and you shall call his name  Jesus, for he will save his people from their  sins.” Matthew 1:21

Sacred season,

One of joy and song,

Music swelling in the heart

All the day long.


Jesus is the Reason,

Yea, He came to the earth,

Let one, let all,

Proclaim His birth.


Who can speak of His glory?

Of His light who can tell?

Who can understand love

Saving us from fires of hell?


Surely none can fathom

The heights of His love,

The humility He embraced

To leave His throne above.


Come now with me,

Let us show our adoration;

Let us kneel before our Savior,

Let us sing in celebration.


Jesus, sweet Jesus,

You are the Reason;

Jesus, sweet Jesus,

The song of this season.


Today, tomorrow,

Now and forevermore,

We lift our hearts to You,

O, One we adore.


Bright is the light

Upon us You shine;

Fill us with Your Spirit,

Your presence divine.


Gifts of gold,

Incense and myrrh we bring,

To You, our Lord, our God,

Our Savior, our King.


We crown You with gold,

We worship You with incense,

Myrrh signifies a bitter life

Before Your presence.


For to us You came,

For us You chose to die;

You, Baby in the manger,

They would crucify.


Yet Heaven we will see

By Your amazing grace;

Those who believe

Will see Your radiant face.


Nigh unto You we draw,

Lord, we love You so;

Christmas and every day

May our love for You show.


The Word made flesh,

You came to the earth,

Let one, let all,

Proclaim Your birth.


O, music fills our hearts

All the day long,

Jesus is the Reason,

With Him forever we belong.
