Happy Birthday Jesus

The most important birthday was on that special day When a child was born, as a sacrifice That no one else could pay

Right from the start He came to live a life of toil and shame It was for us the wicked ones That this poor baby came

There was no celebration going on that blessed day Just cattle, sheep, and horses watched the King lay in the hay

Though shepherds came and wise men too, there was no party there, You see, they came to worship Him, The Savior, bright and fair

They knew that He would be the one to suffer and to die They knew that He was sent by God, for them, for you and I

They somehow wanted to say thanks in their own special way Like them, we too Lord come to you on this great Holy Day

We bring to you our anger Lord That which we hold so dear We bring our unforgiving hearts, our jealousy and fear

We bring the fact that we can’t love each other past this hour We bring our need to be in charge and our strong thirst for power

We bring the lack of faith we have We bring disorder too We bring our unkind thoughts and deeds, these are our gifts to you

We ask that you exchange them Lord Replace them with your love Come in our hearts, and shower us with blessings from above

So like the kings and shepherds Lord, we lift up holy hands To fully worship Jesus, sing His praise throughout the land

So happy birthday Jesus this is your time to shine Please fill our hearts with perfect love Lord, make us wholly thine
