Christmas: Mary, Did you Know?

There are many wonderful Christmas songs. Each of us has a handful of favorites.

What are some of yours?

Below is one that is well known but, for me, it didn't really register until a handful of years ago. The other day I heard it several times on the radio so I thought it would be worth a blog post.

A handful of years ago, a young female Fuller student gave the sermon at Glendale Presbyterian Church. Her approach was to speak as if she were the pregnant Mary pondering her future.

As you might guess, the song that was part of that worship service was Mary, did you know?.
Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Did you know
That your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
That your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered
Will soon deliver you

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Did you know
That your baby boy will calm a storm with His hand?
Did you know
That your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little boy
You've kissed the face of God

Mary, did you know?
The blind will see
The deaf will hear
And 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?
Did you know
That your baby boy will one day rules the nations?
Did you know
That your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding
Is the Great I Am
Merry Christmas to all who click here and God bless you all where ever you are!
