Lyrics: Jesus came for everyone, there wouldn't have been room
For the shepherds and the wise men, and the animals in the Inn.
He hung an invitation to His Birthday by the moon;
A star to tell the whole wide world He came to be our Friend.
Like a friend, He comes to us and knocks upon our door
He says he wants to stay if our family will let Him in.
He promises that there's amazing happiness in store
For all who truly love Him and embrace Him as our friend.
"Follow me," He says, "Do as I do, I am the way."
If it’s dark, He lights the way to a pathway that will not bend.
He'll lead us to a paradise where families can stay.
And we’ll all want to be there with Him because He is our friend.
Friends will always love you, and forgive you when you're wrong.
You can trust that they will always stand beside you to the end.
Jesus knows our hearts, he sees our tears, he hears our song.
He believes in us -- He died for us, He is our truest friend.
He believes in us, now He lives for us.
Jesus is our truest friend.
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.
A Christmas or anytime song from a child's perspective. A friend might send a birthday invitation, they may come knock on the door and ask to play--perhaps games like "follow the leader." What makes a true friend?
My son, Jaron Rose co-arranged this piece.
