More about Dawn Rose:
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and am the mother of eleven children and the grandmother of fifteen. My husband and I are the adoptive parents of seven African-American children. Currently, I am an online student at BYU-Idaho; (I have a son also attending on-campus), my goal is to obtain a degree in the area of Family and Social Services. 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 this past year. 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.
This is a Christmas song that was originally inspired by the visiting Catholic Pope who, when speaking about the family, reminded everyone that even Christ was born into a family with a mother and a father. Then I expounded on the knowledge we have of our relationship to him as children of God.
Lyrics: Verse 1:
Christ, beautiful child, little prince, He has come
to fulfill His divine, redeeming destiny.
Humbly He is born with no wealth, without a home.
Sent from Heav'n with love into a family.
We're all brothers and sisters all children of God.
He has come to save us all, walk where no one ever trod...
Angels rejoice, all earth sing with one voice--
Awe, glorious light
warm in the arms of Mary tonight.
Christ, beautiful child, shepherds gather, wise men kneel
to behold the babe who smiles lovingly.
Parents of a king know their child has come to heal.
Grace for all, for the whole world is His family.
Christ, beautiful child, with a destiny above--
welcome to your family of love.
