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!

    You hear it a lot...read the words carefully. My favorite verse"This child that you delivered, will soon deliver you" Deliver us from hell and the bondage of sin: Jesus, our savior.

    To the person who asked about the last line "the great I am" I am is what God calls himself when Mosses asks who he should tell the people of Israel he is. So when the song says did you know he was the great I am it's the same as saying did you know the baby was God.
