My Favorite Christmas Song

I am part of a wonderful community of bloggers called SITS. If you've never checked it out, you really should. There's a button on my sidebar...click it and away you go.

They sent out some blog ideas for December, since it's a crazy month with the planning of Christmas celebrations, shopping, baking, etc. SO...this was one suggestion, and it was simple: what is your favorite Christmas song?

Total no-brainer for me. Mary, Did You Know. I particularly like the David Phelps version. I tried to put a link at the bottom that will get you to the site where I got the lyrics from, and hopefully you can listen to it from there. This song makes me cry every single time I listen to it...even reading the words makes my heart almost stop. It's overwhelming. It's amazing. It's personal. It's so real.

The thing I miss most about being sick is my ability to sing. I have been singing since I can remember. I still wonder why the one thing I loved so much, something I used to glorify God, was allowed to be taken from me. That is probably something I will struggle with until I get to heaven, and can sing once more.

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?
When you kiss your little baby
You’ve kissed the face of God?
Mary did you know?
Mary did you know?

Chorus

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 Heavens perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you’re holding
Is the Great I AM!

I absolutely LOVE this song and listen to it all year long. This is my favorite line which makes my eyes well with tears every single time:

When you kiss your little baby
You’ve kissed the face of God?

Wonderful!

Cheers :-)
