Two more for the Season

I just had to place this song on my Sunday Hymn Sing this week. I believe it has become a favorite of all of us.

Mary, Did You Know?

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy will one day walk on water?

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?
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 boy
You've kissed the face of god


Mary, did you know?
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?
Did you know
That your baby boy will one day rules the nations?

Did you know

That your baby boy is heavens perfect lamb?

This sleeping child youre holding

Is the great I am


This is a classical song I love which I hear throughout the year but mostly at Christmas. This song, along with Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring, moves me more than just about any I can remember.

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee

God of glory, lord of love

Hearts unfold like flowers before thee

Opening to the sun above

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness

Drive the dark of doubt away

Giver of immortal gladness

Fill us with the light of day


All thy work with joy surround thee
Earth and heaven reflect thy rays
Stars and angels sing around thee

Center of unbroken praise

Field and forest, vale and mountain

Chanting bird and flowing fountain

Call us to rejoice in thee


Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah,rejoice


Mortals, join the mighty chorus

Which the morning stars began

Father love is reignning o’er us

Brother love binds man to man
Ever singing, march we onward

Victors in the midst we strife

Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life
In the triumph song of life

Brenda, I love your song choices today. Mary, Did You Know is my 'at the moment' favorite Christmas carol. It was written by Mark Lowry and we were blessed to go to one of his concerts and hear him sing this in person. It was very touching! And the Bach piece. . .another favorite. It was played at our wedding, 28 years ago next week. Two great songs! They've blessed my day. Thank you.

Mary Did You Know (as sung by Clay Aiken) is one of my favorite songs as well. It gets to me everytime!
