Mary, Did you know?

This just has to be one of my favourite Christmas songs. Although it consists of rhetorical questions addressed to Jesus’ mother, Mary, it is really addressed to us, today. It is more about Jesus than Mary. Although it is related to Christmas, it is timeless and speaks to all the generations of Mankind. For me, it is, “George, did you know?”

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary 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?
Mary 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 have kissed the face of God!

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, 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?
Mary 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!

Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know?

The link below is a Youtube video of this song beautifully sung by Pentatonix. The harmonies are wonderful, the melody is haunting and the words are powerful.

Christmas is about far more than shepherds, wise men and stables. It is far more than remembering a birth of a baby, in a distant land, 2000 years ago. It is about God himself stepping into his creation and bringing hope, restitution and salvation to the whole human race.  It is about the greatest event the world has ever seen!
