On What Was Given Up For Us ( Mary Did You Know?)

"Mary Did You Know?"-

 
Mary Mother of Jesus
*
 

One of my favorite Christmas songs. What powerful words, and when put with the music, the effect is even more emotional...

 
At  first I hesitated to post it -
perhaps because (of the recent tragedy in Connecticut) -
but I actually can't think of a better song to remind us all of our salvation and the peace that we will one day know and share in Heaven.
 

 ...and this video, with vocals from CeeLo Green and scenes from "The Bible" mini-series (from Survivor producer, Mark Burnett), coming in 2013, is simply extraordinary.

 
 
(Official Lyrics from Mark Lowry):
 
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one 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 you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.

The blind will see, the deaf will hear and 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?
This sleeping child you're holding is the great I am.
