We were late because it rained.
I'm happy because I met you. Examples:
We were late because of the rain.
I'm happy because of you. These expressions are also exchangeable and as you can see the first one is more formal than the second. Why something is the result. Note : Because and its clause can go after or before the main clause.

Because I worked fast, I finished early.
