Mary Did You Know - 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?
And this child that you've delivered,
Will 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 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've kissed the face of god?

Oh, Mary, did you know?
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?
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?
This sleeping child you're holding,
Is The Great I AM?

Luke 1:26-55 (NIV)

The Birth of Jesus Foretold

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”

34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called] the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Mary’s Song

46 And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
50 His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
51 He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
52 He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
53 He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
55 to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.”


May God Bless you this Christmas Season...and may you KNOW the GREAT I AM!!


*  CeeLo Green parents were ordained ministers. His father died in 1976 when he was two years old. His mother was involved in a car crash in 1990, leaving her paralyzed, and she then died after the accident in 1992.

Cee Lo said her death led him into depression and that his mother's death was a defining moment to "crossing that threshold over into a career". He defines himself now as a Pantheist.

So is it possible for God to still speak through CeeLo?

The Bible says the high priest Caiaphas, who was trying to put Jesus to death, prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation.... (John 11:47-52).

On his way into Jerusalem, Jesus said that if the people praising him were silenced that the rocks and stones would cry aloud.

So I believe yes...God can use the voice and talents of CeeLo (and producer Mark Burnett of Survivor and The Voice fame).

And perhaps CeeLo will find that still small voice speaking back to him through his own music.
