Mary, Did You Know

Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, “Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against (yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.”Luke 2:34-35

One of my all time favorite Christmas songs is “Mary, did you know?”
It was written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene and first recorded by Michael English, which is my favorite version.

I catch myself wondering what Mary knew.
Obviously she knew she would have a Son and name Him Jesus. He would be the Son of the Most High.
But did she have an inkling that her Son would heal the sick and raise the dead? Did she dream that He would teach a better relationship with the Father?
Did she realize the sorrow she would experience some 33 years after she gave birth, when she would watch Him be crucified?

Mary, Did You Know

Mary did you know
That your baby boy
Would one day walk on water
Mary did you know
That your baby boy
Would 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
Would give sight to the blind man
Mary did you know
That your baby boy
Would 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
Oh Mary did you know

Ooh Mary did you know ooh ooh

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

Oh 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
And the sleeping Child you’re holding
Is the great I Am
Oh Mary oh
