How to say happy birthday in German

I have a friend whose native language is German (but she's also fluent in English) and since her birthday is in a few days, I thought it would be cool to give her a card that says happy birthday in German. So if anyone knows how to say happy birthday in German, please write it below and I will be very grateful. Danke! :)

Both versions also work without the "zum Geburtstag" btw. So "Herzlichen Glückwunsch, liebe PutNameHere" (if your friend is called PutNameHere...) is also possible. I sometimes just write "Alles Gute :-) " on the facebook wall of aquiantances.

You could also sing "Hoch soll er/sie leben" ! Which sorta just means "Cheers to you!"
