Mary, Did You Know? - Tuesday Tunes

I first heard this song on Michael English's debut album and loved it. Dozens(hundreds?) of artists have recorded it since then and it is firmly planted in the Christmas music library of most people. I could show several different videos capturing this song, but today I want to show you these two for very specific reasons.

The first video is Michael English singing the song with Buddy Green who wrote the music for the song.


This video is of Mark Lowery singing the song he wrote the lyrics to.




Lyrics for "Mary Did You Know?" by Mark Lowery

Mary did you know
That your baby boy
Will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know
Tht 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 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've kissed the face of God?

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 your holding
Is the great I AM.
