More about Dawn Rose:
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and am the mother of eleven children and the grandmother of sixteen. My husband and I are the adoptive parents of seven African-American children. I have an internet business, since 2007, where I make and sell look-a-like dolls of children all over the world. Writing poetry is a lifelong joy; lately I am finding pleasure in the whimsical characters that have come to life in my children's poetry. Three of these poems have been published as children's books so far. I play guitar by ear and love to sing, and although I am not a pianist, with the new computer programs available I can compose the music I feel in my heart. I hope my music will be a blessing to some of you. Things I love: Music, literature, laughing children, the words of Christ, soft horse muzzles, and floppy dog ears.
Song background:

This is very simple and sweet children's Christmas song with a musicbox feel to it. I added a Cello part for fun which seems to ground it.

Lyrics: JOLLY LITTLE BABY <br/>By Dawn Rose <br/> <br/>Jolly little baby, chubby little cheeks <br/>Looking up at angels as the donkey peeks <br/>Down into the manger, then up at the stars <br/>That direct the wisemen coming from afar. <br/> <br/>Following, following, following the star; <br/>God has sent his newborn king--- <br/>Given from His heart. <br/> <br/>Jesus is the gift our Father sent to Earth; <br/>That’s why we, at Christmas, celebrate His birth. <br/>Why we all give gifts to people that we love; <br/>So we can be like our Father up above. <br/> <br/>Following, following, following the star; <br/>God has sent his newborn king--- <br/>Given from His heart. <br/>
