The 12 Days Of Christmas Songs (Day 3)

Christmas Songs for December 16, 2022


Regardless of when Jesus was actually born, it’s a good thing to celebrate the birth of Jesus! Christmas is a great time to praise, worship and give honor to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ – the Savior of the world!

Pastor Dewey Moede and I agreed that sharing a mixture of modern and traditional Christmas songs is in order for this season!  So, from December 14, 2022 through Christmas Day, I’ll post articles with videos or audio-videos of some great and worshipful Christmas-themed songs.

For Day 3, let’s enjoy the song Mary, Did You Know.  The song’s lyrics were written by Mark Lowry in 1984 and the music was written by Buddy Greene in 1991.  It was originally recorded by Michael English in 1991.  The Gaither Vocal Band also performed a highly popular version recorded on the group’s 1998 Christmas album – Still The Greatest Christmas Story Ever Told.

The video recording below was made by Maverick City Music, which has quickly become one of the most amazing and successful contemporary worship music organizations today.  Maverick City Music’s songs are being played regularly in churches and in our homes across the country (and the world).  The musicianship is superior, but does not override the musicians’ love for, and the worship of, Jesus.  I hope you enjoy and maybe even sing along with Maverick City Music’s Mary, Did You Know!

Here are the lyrics:

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
Would soon deliver you

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know that your baby boy
Has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby
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

O 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
He is the Great I Am!

And, I couldn’t resist also including a video recording of Mary, Did You Know performed by The One Voice Children’s Choir, as premiered on December 12, 2020.  Please click HERE if you would like to learn more about this Utah-based organization.  For now, here is The One Voice Children’s Choir performing Mary, Did You Know!

God bless you all!  Hopefully you’ll come back to FGGAM’s website tomorrow and join me for some new Christmas music on Day 4.
