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

    Best christmas song ever! Did she know just how special was? Or that the precious little baby she delivered in a manger no less, was the key to salvation for everyone, everywhere, for all time? I don't think we can even comprehend how much our God loves us, gifting us with His Son, washing our sins away with His sacrifice. I know that I will never be able to deserve what He has so lovingly given, but I will be thankful every single second of every day. Happy Birthday Jesus!

    I love this song and I'm very honored to have him as my Lord and I thank God for giving his only begotten son, Jesus. And I want to think Jesus for making my life better with God. All things through Christ Jesus. If he gave God to you he can take him away so be thankful. No one ever said it would be easy but nothing is impossible for and with God. Thank you God in Jesus' precious name. Amen.

    This great song seems to some up jesus as the son, the father and the holy spirit. It sums up his life as to why he was born and how he continues to be with us throughout eternity. I can honestly say it is probaly at the top of the thousands of songs that I am familiar with. I listen to it almost daily and have never tired of it. Thank you so much for writing this song. Mark and buddy I think heaven is very pleased with you.

    Applying this song's message to our lives:
    when god sent an angel to tell mary that she would bear (and, presumably, rear) god-incarnate the savior, mary actively cooperated with what god asked of her - over many years - even though she did not know (let alone understand) the details of the future horror and sorrow which would precede joy. Likewise, when god sends each of us impulses, ideas, asking us to carry within us certain feelings and convictions and to develop certain abilities, habits, relationships, over time, we do not know nor understand the details of the future difficulties and discouragements which we will encounter before our joy is complete, and we do not yet understand how the beliefs and actions we nurture can help to save us and the people we encounter. Praise be to god.

    The first time I heard this song I felt like the lyrics were talking to me. Each word touched my heart, and spoke to me about mary, the mother god in a way I never thought of before. With the words, "mary did you know when kiss you baby, you kiss the face of god", brought tears to my eyes. I can't think of any song that could do that to me.
