Christmas songs come in all different forms. Some are fun and lighthearted or focus on winter play, while others seek to share the true meaning of Christmas.
Amid the hustle and bustle of decorations, parties, shopping and everything "merry and bright," it's easy to lose sight of why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. After all, without Jesus, there would be no Christmas.
Perfect for helping us keep the right focus, is the song, "Mary, Did You Know?" as sung by Pentatonix. This a cappella group has an impeccably clear sound that is literally music to the ears. The original lyrics by Mark Lowry, encapsulate questions we might each ask Mary, the mother of Jesus.
It's hard to comprehend what she must have gone through as the mother of the one who would save us all and to raise the only begotten son of God on earth. Could you imagine?
Read these beautifully inquisitive lyrics — while you listen to them, of course!
"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?
"Mary 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 ... Mary did you know
"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."
