Did You Know?

I've had the Todd Agnew Christmas CD Do You See What I See? for a few years now.  I've always enjoyed it.  This year one song has been stuck in my head.  It's Did You Know -Song to Jesus.  It's a thought provoking song about God becoming man.  I've thought about what it would have meant to be Mary, and this year what it would have meant to be Joseph.  Even though I have listened to this song before, I never really thought what it was like to be the baby, to be Jesus.

If you have a few minutes, please listen to it.  I've put the lyrics below.



The lyrics:

Were Mary's eyes the first eyes You saw
Or did You remember choosing that shade of brown?
Were You surprised at the shepherd's crazy story
Or did You know You wrote the song the angels sang?

What was this life like for You?

Did You know?
Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?
How much heaven and how much earth
Were in this baby at His birth?
Did You know? Or did You wonder?

Did You remember the brightness of Your glory Or did You just notice it was cold and dark here?
Did You know Your name or did You have to be told?
Were You just a baby or were You as old as time?

What was Your life like?

Did You know?
Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?
How much heaven and how much earth
Were in this baby at His birth?
Did You know? Or did You wonder?

Did You wonder?

What was Your life like?
Did the cross cast its shadow o'er Your cradle?
Did You know?
Did You shudder each time Your hammer struck a nail?
Did You know?
How much heaven and how much earth
Were in this baby at His birth?
Did You know? Or did You wonder?

Did You wonder? 


Do you have a Christmas song stuck in your head this year?
