Mary Did You Know (Christmas Carol with lyrics)

The first time I heard this Christmas carol, I thought it was one of those classic old hymns. I was surprised that it was actually written by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene in the 1990s.

Judging from the response it has received this is now truly a modern Christmas carol classic and has been recorded by many artists all over the world.

Famous artists who have recorded this christmas song include, Kenny Rogers, Mary J Blige, Don Moen, Clay Aiken, Cee Lo Green and Pentatonix.

The first recording was done by Michael English in 1991 and reached no. 6 on CCM Magazine AC chart.

Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene are regular features on the Bill and Gloria Gaither music concerts. Mark Lowry is also member of the Gaither Vocal Band and so was Michael English when he recorded his version of this song.

Here are the lyrics of this Christmas carol, Mary Did You Know.

"Mary Did You Know"
(originally by Mark Lowry (lyrics) and Buddy Greene (melody))

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 would 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.
