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.

By Dawn Rose

Jolly little baby, chubby little cheeks
Looking up at angels as the donkey peeks
Down into the manger, then up at the stars
That direct the wisemen coming from afar.

Following, following, following the star;
God has sent his newborn king---
Given from His heart.

Jesus is the gift our Father sent to Earth;
That’s why we, at Christmas, celebrate His birth.
Why we all give gifts to people that we love;
So we can be like our Father up above.

Following, following, following the star;
God has sent his newborn king---
Given from His heart.
