Grattis på födelsedagen OR Har den äran på födelsedagen


Explanation:
The first one has already been explained by Mats Wiman, see above.

As for the second one (which is more formal, and rarely used nowadays):
"Har den äran (att gratulera)" = (I, We) are honoured (literally: have the honour) to congratulate you on your (the) birthday.
