Did You Know?

Here are two of my favorite Christmas songs. Both ask the haunting question, “Did you know?”

Here are two of my favorite Christmas songs.  Both ask the haunting question, “Did you know?”

The first poses the question to Jesus.

Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?

The second focuses on Mary.

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.

Did You know? – Todd Agnew

Mary Did You Know? – Mark Lowry

 

Here are the lyrics to both songs for my hearing impaired friends.

Did You Know – Todd Agnew

Were Mary's eyes the first eyes You saw
Or did You remember choosing that shade of brown?
Were You surprised at the shepherd's crazy story
Or did You know You wrote the song the angels sang?

What was this life like for You?

Did You know?
Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?
How much heaven and how much earth
Were in this baby at His birth?
Did You know? Or did You wonder?

Did You remember the brightness of Your glory Or did You just notice it was cold and dark here?
Did You know Your name or did You have to be told?
Were You just a baby or were You as old as time?

What was Your life like?

Did You know?
Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?
How much heaven and how much earth
Were in this baby at His birth?
Did You know? Or did You wonder?

Did You wonder?

What was Your life like?
Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?
How much heaven and how much earth
Were in this baby at His birth?
Did You know? Or did You wonder?

Did You wonder?

Mary Did You Know – 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.

Merry Christmas!  May the peace of joy of Christmas be yours this holiday season.

 

An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

 

 

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.

 

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  Luke 2:9-11 NLT
