The Birthday Of Our King (Happy Birthday Jesus!)

Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday, Lord Jesus!
Happy Birthday to You!

Once a year we gather ‘round the Christmas tree
Celebrating Christmas with our friends and family
Not knowing nearly two thousand years ago
This is the Birthday of our King!

On the night of Christmas God became a man
To bring back man and God together once again
The angels sang out, “Good tidings we bring”
“This is the Birthday of our King!”

So bring out your presents let us celebrate
The greatest Gift of all is given to us this day
Sing, shout and clap your hands, rejoicing in His name!
This is the Birthday of our King!

I had originally intended this song for Christmas, and for kids (a more ‘fun’ song to sing – beside the usual carols). But one Christmas, it was presented in church and it took off from there! It became a hit carol that is still sung even today! That still surprises me. Still, I am glad that it has blessed this many people so far. And yes… the chorus is sung in the same tune as the ‘birthday’ song we usually sing around the cake. It would make sense to do so, wouldn’t it? After all, it is the Birthday of our King!
