Mary Did You Know?

I haven’t been listening to music too much lately, but given the season, the music that I have been listening to is Christmas music.

I remember hearing the song “Mary Did You Know” for the past few Christmases, and thinking… what a cheesy, out-of-date song. Before, I had been focused on the “sound,” not the words of the song. But this Christmas, I truly listened with new ears! Wow, the lyrics are so touching! I imagined myself as Mary holding baby God in my very arms. What must have been going through Mary’s mind as she held her child? Brought by an angel of God through the Holy Spirit!

This song, coupled with a character study of Mary by Chuck Swindoll brought me a new perspective and revelation of the birth of Jesus through the eyes of those who were there (Mary, and her contemporaries). Now, every time I hear this song I tear up in worship. This my favorite line … When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God…

A blessed song for sure! To think that I so wickedly critiqued it in years past. Thank You Lord for humbling my heart to receive the beauty of this song and the imagination to put myself in Mary’s shoes as she received the news that she would be the vessel to birth the King of Glory. Here is a link to the song and lyrics for those who may not have heard the song before. I pray that you may be blessed to imagine the birth of Jesus through the eyes of a young mother as you hear this song.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

Mary did you know.. Ooo Ooo Ooo

The blind will see.
The deaf will hear.
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap.
The dumb will speak
The praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you’re holding is the Great, I Am.
