The Scripture says,
  • “But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19 – NKJV)
As the shepherds came and the magi came to see the newborn babe, it is said that “Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” Much had taken place in this young woman’s life, miracles abounding, as angels and stars and the such surrounded this wonderful event in her life. What do you think she “kept?” What do you thing she “pondered?” The beautiful wording of the Christmas hymn of 1991 asks . . .
   
 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 daughter?
    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?

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… 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?  

    This sleeping child you’re holding, Is the great I AM?

As I listened this past weekend to this wonderful wording, this most reverent Christmas hymn I was moved emotionally. Every time I hear it I react with great awe, with tears of gratefulness in my heart. Brethren . . . this Christmas event that you and I celebrate is no small matter. 

“Mary . . . did you know?” Maybe some of these things were that which Mary “kept” and “pondered in her heart.” One thing is for certain, the descriptive words of this song do well in noting just how special this “Baby Boy” was . . . and is! 

Have a good day brethren . . . and as you walk maybe find some time to listen to this Christmas hymn, and may its words cause you to be in awe of the Christmas miracle of our Lord’s birth.
