Clay Aiken - 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 will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

Mary did you know.. Ooo Ooo Ooo

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 will one day rule the nations?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you're holding is the Great, I Am.

This past Sunday marked the first Sunday of Advent, the beginning of the Church’s New Year, so I only find it fitting to post a song proper of the season. I don’t know that I have a particular Christmas song I would designate as my favorite, as I truly enjoy many; however, I find that this song moves me in a way not like other Christmas songs.

Like many Christmas songs, this song is about the birth of Christ. What charms me most about this song is it’s foretelling of who Christ is and the anticipation and joy of His arrival, which personifies the purpose of the Advent season. It is a dual reminder of the original waiting that was done by the Hebrews for the birth of their Messiah as well as the waiting that Christians today endure as they await the second coming of Christ… it is a divination of who the Christ is and the miracles of His glory.

I love all of the biblical references to the Gospel and especially the last one to the Book of Exodus. That's all I really have to say. I just really love this song!
