Song for Sunday: Happy Birthday, Jesus

I've mentioned my musical tastes are pretty varied. Today's selection comes from the world of country music, specifically the band Alabama. It reminds us of what we are celebrating in this Christmas season.

Happy Birthday, Jesus

Happy birthday, Jesus,
It's that time of year
All the lights on the trees
Say Christmas time is near
Another year's behind us,
You helped us make it through
So, happy birthday, Jesus,
This song is just for you

We all get so hung up
On material things
At times it seems like we forget
What Christmas really means
It should be thanks we're givin',
That's why I wrote this tune
Happy brithday, Jesus,
This song is just for you

There's a gift for everyone
But you underneath the tree
No, it's not much, but I hope you like
This song to you from me

Happy birthday Jesus,
That's why I wrote this tune
So, happy birthday, Jesus,
My song is just for you...
