“Love Had To Be The Reason”
As I look around about me,
At the wickedness abounding in these troubled days,
Evil rages o’re the land, Men pay no mind to God’s commands
I am amazed!
That one as He who knew no wrong Would choose a cross to die upon
And for a godless world salvation buy,
This mystery I can’t fully see, But I believe love had to be
The reason why.
What else could cause a king
To leave His throne
To live among the poor and lowly
What else could cause the sinless Son of God To dwell within a world unholy
Words of man cannot explain Why such a one as Jesus came
To die a lonely death on Calvary ..
But it seems to me, Love Had To Be, the Reason.
Hear the little children crying
Souls are lost and men are dying ... Jesus loves them all.
And I the least of all of these
Still marvel at His grace t’ward me when I recall ...
All the wealth and glory He denied When He chose to be crucified
And shed the blood that for worlds would attone.
Tho’ men would to explain it try,
I still believe the reason why was love alone.
