Mary did you know

When I was a kid I wanted to be a football player or a lawyer. I wasn't very good at sewing things . And my sewing machine has been borrowed by lots of people, hardly used by me. Sarah has the role of Mary (the mother of Jesus). I got a note saying that I should make her a costume. I'm thinking "what"!!! Who do you think I am? I'm not my mom, or my sisters. They are good at that. I'm good at other things. Should teachers assume parents have sewing skills? And I got a 3 days notice. So I dusted off the machine and started to tear up an old sheet. Thank God Sarah looks good in anything. I'm sure more then one grandmother, and mother will shake their head at my poor work. But I must say Sarah looks sweet anyway. 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 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’ve 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 will one day rule the nations? Did you know that your Baby Boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb? And this sleeping child you’re holding is the great „I Am“! Text: Mark Lowry Melodie: Buddy Greene
