There Is A Reason

A         E          D             A
I've seen hard times and I've been told
D                             E
There isn't any wonder that I fall
A         E       D                A
Why do we suffer, crossing off the years
D               E             A   E  
There must be a reason for it all

A                    E         D               A
I've trusted in You, Jesus, to save me from my sins
D                             E
Heaven is the place I call my home
A                     E                 D                A
But I keep on getting caught up in this world I'm living in
D                           E              A    E  
And Your voice it sometimes fades before I know

F#m               D             E              A
Hurtin' brings my heart to You, crying with my need
F#m               A             E
Depending on Your love to carry me
A                      E         D                A
The love that shed His blood for all the world to see
D                E             A    E  A
This must be the reason for it all

F#m               D               E               A
Hurtin' brings my heart to You, a fortress in the storm
F#m                 A               E
When what I wrap my heart around is gone
A                  E             D             A
I give my heart so easily to the ruler of this world
D                         E                 A    E  A
When the one who loves me most will give me all

F#m                    D             E                   A
In all the things that cause me pain You give me eyes to see
F#m               A           E
I do believe but help my unbelief
A         E          D             A 
I've seen hard times and I've been told
D          E             A
There is a reason for it all
