Happy Birthday Jesus

A House so quiet so humble
A Child beside her bed
Her hands clasp tightly
Time to pray
So she bows her little head
Happy birthday Jesus
Daddy said that you were near
and that you had a birthday
this time every year.

He told me how you listen
to every word we say
and that you hear us call
in the night or in the day

He explained how bad they hurt you
and made you suffer so
But said you let them do it
for girls like me, I know

He told me about the manger
they put you in
I'd let you have my blanket
If I was there back then
He said that you were watching
everything we do
Him, mommy, granny 
and our new baby too.

I like what daddy told me
of how  you healed the lame
and that you don't
have to have any wealth or fame

But he told me
That you were so awfully good
and then he made me cry

He said that they nailed you
to a cross
they wanted you to die
and then he made me happy
when he said you came back again
Daddy said Christmas
is what we celebrate
because on that day
You were born

So I hope
I am not too late
To wish you a
Happy Birthday Dear Jesus
