Merry Christmas!

Mary, Did You Know?
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!

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Willow,

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and abundant blessings for 2010. We had a wonderful day with family for brunch and then came home for a couple of quiet hours before Mom came for dinner.

Blessings,

Hearing Kathy Matae sing this song for the first time a number of years ago stopped me dead in my tracks until the song was finished, then I immediately hunted down and purchased the recording. Such a hauntingly beautiful piece. It's one of our favorite pieces to do at our annual Christmas acoustic sing-along. (the other one we do, though is Rich Mullins' My Deliverer, which while not "Christmas" sure fits!)

You sure had an active household over Christmas! :-)
