My new favorite Christmas Song discovery by this awesome a capella music group, Pentatonix:
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
Mary did you know, 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 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
Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know?

And the answer to the rhetorical questions in the song is so cute.
[John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made… 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.]
… Jesus being Alpha and Omega is Creator. And all human beings from Adam onwards are Created.
…Jesus, The Only Righteous One, The One whom the apostle, Peter, in his epistle refers to himself as servant of
[2 Peter 1:1-3 1 Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ have received a faith as precious as ours]
…Jesus, The One Mediator between God and man who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. nobody goes to the Father except through Me.”
[1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus.]
…Jesus, who Himself intercedes on our behalf
[Romans 8:34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.]
…Jesus, in Whose life all the biblical prophecies were fulfilled
… Jesus, The One who was crucified, died, and rose again, reason for the gospel
[1 Corinthians 15:2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raisedon the third day according to the Scriptures.]
…Eph 3:20…Jesus Who now sits at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. 22 And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church.
God the Son who would become flesh and dwell among man through beloved Mama Mary
…was her Savior—The Savior, of all who need saving.
Luke 1:46 And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord 47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
