Christmas Lyrics

Yesterday Dick and I attended a choral performance by the Spirit of Phoenix (male) Chorus. I've always thought I preferred the more traditional Christmas carols until the group sang "Mary, Did You Know." Being out of the loop when it comes to contemporary music, I'd never heard it before. Mark Lowry wrote the lyrics. Adding music makes his words even more impactful.

Mary did you know that your baby boy will some 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 your kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

Oh Mary did you know

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?
This sleeping child you're holding is the great I am


 Merry Christmas, everybody.
