Blog Caroling 2013: Mary Did You Know

by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene
Sung by CeeLo Green, on The Bible

The Christmas Season is once more upon us, and what is it that we hear? 
Is there anything positive out there? 
Or is it all squabbling over who said this, or who did that? 
Is there any peace in our homes...our communities...our towns, cities and nations? 
Or is this a time of unrest? 
Do you have that same child-like expectancy of Christmas morn as when you were a child? And were they really "the good old days?" 
And if so, for whom?
I am finding more and more the older I get that Christmas was just the beginning...
A time at the end of our calendar to help us to refocus on the true meaning of our existence. 
And as we enter a new year...2014...will it bring us closer to the Reason for the Season?
It is my earnest prayer that we...my family...my friends...and my brothers and sisters in Christ...will rekindle that flame that once burned with a Passion...so that all may see your light shine that they, too, might know Him...Jesus.
Mary 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 make a blind man see?
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.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again.
The lame will leap, the mute 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.

  1. Debra, this was EXCELLENT! And this Christmas Carol is one of my family's favorite! I'm impressed with Ceelo's version of it; I heard that he sings this carol, but I had not heard it. Thank you so much for adding it to the blog caroling playlist!!

    Wishing you and yours have a very Merry & Blessed Christmas!
