This song seems to divide people (into those who dislike it and those who love it). I’m somewhere in the middle regarding the lyrics. But this arrangement by the Pentatonix has such drama and beautiful harmony, it is definitely worth a listen.
And in answer to the question, did Mary know? The short answer is yes, in some small measure, she did know who Christ would be and what he would do (see Luke 1:46-55 for details). No doubt the reality was both much worse and much better!
Mary, Did you know?
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’ve delivered, will soon deliver you
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 kiss the face of God
Mary did you know? Mary did you know? Mary did you know?
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb
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?
That sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am
Mary did you know? Mary did you know? Mary did you know? Oh

Loved it! Really liked the next one on the play list, their version of “Hallelujah.” BTW, I’m less sure that Mary really “knew” who her Child really was. Before Pentecost, no one seemed to grasp the supernatural reality of God-as-man. His disciples certainly didn’t, even though He kept telling them and showing them. She came to know, but how would she be able to understand how her Child was nailed to a tree when He was supposed to be king? Any rate, thanks for sharing the link. God bless.
