lyrics

Little baby was born today
The leaves all danced and the branches swayed
They heard the cry from miles away
And all went quiet in the woods today

In a little log cabin a mama smiled
As she gazed at the face of her newborn child
All the generations reconciled
In the gentle little face of a newborn child

And oh, the heave and push
And oh, the birds all hushed
And oh, the rabbit rushed away
And oh, the face so flush
The glowing eyes in the bramble bush
The forest sang a song so lush and gay
For the sweet little baby born in the woods today

The animals felt the shine today
Like the warming touch of the sun’s red rays
The doe and the sow and the mama jay
Spread the word through the woods today

In a little log cabin a daddy cried
As he gazed in the faces of the babe and bride
He heard the rush of the river and the wind outside
Said a prayer to the giver of the spirit wild

And oh, the aching love
Below the snowy dove
That soared in the sky above the fray
And oh, the deal we make
The old and young and the give and take
We owe a debt when we create a way
For a sweet little baby born in the woods today
