The Oak Ridge Boys are an American country and gospel vocal quartet. The group was founded in the 1940s as the Oak Ridge Quartet. They became popular in Southern Gospel during the 1950s. Their name was changed to the Oak Ridge Boys in the early 1960s, and they remained a gospel group until the mid-1970s, when they changed their image and concentrated on country music.
The lineup that produced their world-famous and most well-known country and crossover hits (such as “Elvira” [1981], “Bobbie Sue” [1982], and “American Made”) consists of Duane Allen (lead), Joe Bonsall (tenor), William Lee Golden (baritone), and Richard Sterban (bass). Golden and Allen joined the group in the mid-1960s, and Sterban and Bonsall joined in the early 1970s. Aside from an 8-year gap (1987–95) when Golden left the group and was replaced, this lineup has been together since 1973 and continues to tour and record.

This song – in fact, this whole album – has long been a favorite of our family. It is a fun song to listen to and sing.
Bible Reference… Matthew 2:1-12; Luke 2:7,15-18; John 3:16
Jesus was born today; born in a manger.
Though He was young, they say He was no stranger.
He has set me free; you’ll find you’ll believe.
I’m so glad to see it is His birthday.

        CHORUS:
        Jesus was born today; Oh, how we praise Him!
        Shepherds and wise men say they will adore Him!
        Mighty love has He, just for you and for me;
        I’m so glad to see it is His birthday! (Happy Birthday!)
        Birthday! (Happy Birthday!) Birthday! (Happy Birthday!)
        Birthday! (Happy Birthday!) Birthday! (Happy Birthday!)

Jesus was born today; born in a manger.
Though He was young, they say He was no stranger. (Repeat)

        CODA:
        I am so glad He came into my life… every life;
        made it right, now everything will be all right, ’cause (CHORUS)

Jesus was born today; born in a manger.
Though He was young, they say He was no stranger. (Repeat)
