"The Reason" is a song by Lacey Sturm for the album compilation, My Hope: Songs Inspired By The Message And Mission Of Billy Graham. The song was written by Lacey and Josh Sturm. It was produced by Pete Kipley.

My Hope also features Sturm's song, "Mercy Tree".

Background Edit

"The Reason" was recorded in June of 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee for My Hope to accompany Billy Graham's main 'My Hope America' program called 'The Cross'.

"The Reason" first premiered at a Rock The Lakes festival in 2011. Lyrically and sonically, the two versions - album and live - are quite different.

It is possibly the inspiration of the title for Sturm's first book, The Reason.

Lyrics Edit

Album Version Edit

All my life, I've searched for something
To satisfy the longing in my heart
And everytime, I come away emptier than before

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone

You formed my heart with Your own hands
But I just could not understand
If I gave You my life
I'd be healed by Your grace
I was made for Your love
And gave others Your place

I spent my days giving my heart away to anything new
Only to ache from the poison of my temporary muse
And there were times I'd cry myself to sleep at night
Only to wake up wishing that I didn't

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone

You formed my heart with Your own hands
But I just could not understand
If I gave You my life
I'd be healed by Your grace
I was made for Your love
And gave others Your place

Thank You for never giving up on me
When I looked to everything else and lived so selfishly
You bled, and You died to be with me
Why would You do something like that for someone like me?

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone

You formed my heart with Your own hands
And now I finally understand
And I give You my life
And I'm healed by Your grace
I was made for Your love that no one can replace
This is it
I wont miss everything I am made for
To be Yours
All Yours

Live Version Edit

All my life, I've searched for something
To satisfy the longing in my heart
And everytime, I come away emptier than before

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone
I'm giving You my life, so take me
'Cause I could never live without You now
I'm giving You my life, so take me
'Cause I could never live without You now

There were times I'd cry myself to sleep at night
Only to wake up wishing that I didn't

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone
I'm giving You my life, so take me
'Cause I could never live without You now
I'm giving You my life, so take me
'Cause I could never live without You now

Thank You for never giving up on me
When I looked to everything else but You
You bled, and You died to be with me
Why would You do something like that for someone like me?

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone
I'm giving You my life, so take me
'Cause I could never live without You now
I'm giving You my life, so take me
'Cause I could never live without You now

And now I finally see the reason
'Cause I was made to be Yours alone
