The Reason for the Season (A Christmas Song)

You came into this world
To do what you were told.

You were born in a manger.
In a world full of strangers.

You came to set us free.


You are my Lord.
You gave up your life for me
You carried the cross
Called the lost
Healed our souls
And you made our lives complete.
You are my Lord.

And as we celebrate
The season of joy today,
Forget all the hate.
Just follow the way
To the heaven's gate.


You are my Lord.
You gave up your life for me
You carried the cross
Called the lost
Healed our souls
And you made our lives complete.
You are my Lord.


You gave up your life for me
You carried the cross
Called the lost
Healed our souls
And you made our lives complete.
You are my Lord.


As tears fall from my eyes
Because of all the sad goodbyes
You remind me the reason
For this joyful season.
All fears erased when you said, "It is I".

You gave up your life for me
You carried the cross
Called the lost
Healed our souls
And you made our lives complete.
You are my Lord.

What are christmas songs?

Christmas songs are songs generally played or performed during the Christmas season. It covers various genres such as ballad, rock, instrumental, jazz, and others. The topic of Christmas songs is mostly about the birth of Jesus though many songs in recent years are about other characters or objects popular during the season (snowman, bells, Santa, etc.). Christmas songs covers various emotions such as joy (Joy to the world), solemnity (Oh Holy Night), and loneliness (White Christmas).

According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the biggest selling song of all time is "White Christmas" by Bing Crosby. It sold 50 million copies world wide.


The season of Christmas indeed invokes creativity of many musical artistis. Year after year christmas albums are still being released worldwide. Each album hoping to produce a modern holiday classic such as Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas" which makes an yearly comeback at the Billboard Hot 100 during Christmas season.


I myself was inspired by the Christmas vibes to write a Christmas song. For this hub, I am sharing a Christmas song that I wrote entitled "The Reason for the Season". I also uploaded o you tube a raw a capella recording of the song sung by yours truly. The link shown below. A shaky performance recorded only using my laptop (no fancy mic, no autotune) but nonetheless, it is a song of praise for our King.

Update: a friend of mine made an acoustic version of the song. It is amazing.

I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas to all. God bless everyone!
