Their faces I formed so that mine they would seek Ears to listen for the Word I would speak, Eyes to see, minds to understand All they required I made with my Hand.

Mary did you know? Lyrics by Mark Lowry
Mary did you know …that your baby boy would someday walk on water? would save our sons and daughters? would soon deliver you? would calm a storm with His hand? walked where angels trod? And when you kiss your little baby…you’ve kissed the face of God.
Oh, 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 praises to the Lamb.
Oh, Mary did you know your baby boy…is Lord of all creation?
And Mary did you know your baby boy…will one day rule the nations
Oh Mary did you know the sleeping child you’re holding
…Is The Great I AM !
