Blog Caroling: Mary Did You Know?




Mary Did You Know?
Lyrics by Mark Lowry and music by Buddy Greene

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 you 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.

Dearest Readers,
Our beloved colleague, and editor/publisher of Shades of the Departed, the divine footnoteMAVEN, came up with the idea of blog caroling on a winter's eve, many long years ago. This year, as gift to fM, we continue, as any good genealogist would do, by celebrating the tradition. With fM's permission, of course.

This is Ol' Myrt's contribution, with a little help from Jordan Smith. If you wish to contribute to The Great Blog Caroling Song Book 2015 Edition, create your musical blog post, then post your link on the Friends of footnoteMAVEN Facebook Group located here.

Myrt     :)
DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.
