My Favorite Christmas Song

I got tagged this week to tell you my favorite Christmas song. Jessica and I share the same one! It's Mary Did you Know. When I was in highschool we had a live nativity at our church every year and I was Mary. When this song was played I immediately thought about what it would be like to be Mary, carrying the beloved baby Jesus. My aunt is an incredible singer and she too would sing it every year at church. Now that I have my own two precious little ones I think even more about what Mary must have felt carrying my Savior. What a task, what trust she had.
So if you are ever around me and this song is on, cover your ears. I always belt it out, and I can't sing a lick:)

Mary Did you Know?
Mary did you know, that your baby boy would one day walk on water
Did you know, that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters
Did you know that your baby boy would come to make you new
That this child that you delivered would soon deliver you

Mary did you know that your baby boy would give sight to a blind man
Did you know that your baby boy would 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 have kissed the face of God

Mary did you know
The blind will see
The deaf will hear
And the dead will live again
The lame will leap again
The dumb will speak
The praises of the lamb

Mary did you know
That your baby boy is Lord of all creation
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
This sleeping child you're holding
Is the GREAT I AM

This song in essence, is what Christmas means to me.
What is your favorite Christmas song?

That's a great one - I had forgotten it - who wrote it, do you know? My traditional favorite song is "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" by Charles Wesley - fantastically written song. The profoundness (don't you love how I start to make up words at 12:04 am!) of the lyrics really struck me a couple years ago. Would like to write just one song like that before I'm 80... :)
