Mark Lowry – Mary Did You Know lyrics

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2]
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

[Verse 3]
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.

    I think that as a mother mary knew that her son was special, but I'm sure she as any mother loved her son but was afraid of losing him to the world. I mean think of this jesus loved each person as much as he loved her. How could you even begin to imagine this? I'm sure god sent special comfort and knowledge to mary so she could deal with the magnitude of the miricales jesus would perform. The song itself is a wonderful song it brings chill bumps each time I hear or read the words.

    From a christmas card - 'some people think that christmas time is gifts and grub and booze - but the best bit is that jesus came - god's son in human shoes. ' that by becoming a man god was able to show us god (john 1: 18), and to offer us new life and salvation (1 tim 1: 15), to offer us reconciliation (2 cor 5: 19) and to defeat the devil (1 john 3: 8). Best thing I ever did was follow him - why not try that for yourself? Happy christmas!
