Mary, did you know?



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 baby
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 rule 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


When I first heard this song on the radio a few years ago, they were playing the version by Kenny Rogers from his album, "The Gift"-- the lyrics touched me so deeply, and my eyes still well up whenever I hear it. It's on my Playlist--you can scroll down to the bottom of this page and click on it--luckily, I found this on their website, as the album was out of print and I couldn't find a copy anywhere a few years ago. I don't know if that's changed or not, but I think the words in this song are very powerful, and although I've heard a few other performers sing them, somehow the version by Kenny Rogers (with Wynonna Judd) still has a profound effect on me.

You can get this song sung by the artist "Arlen". He lives in Livonia, MI and all the money from this album goes to Childrens hospital. He does a lovely job too!
