MARY, DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR BABY BOY WOULD SOMEDAY WALK ON WATER?

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?
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOUR BABY BOY HAS WALKED WHERE ANGELS TROD?
WHEN YOU KISSED YOUR LITTLE BABY THEN YOU’VE KISSED THE FACE OF GOD.

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 WAS HEAVEN’S PERFECT LAMB?

GOD REST YE MERRY GENTLEMEN
ALL:
GOD REST YE MERRY, GENTLEMEN, LET NOTHING YOU DISMAY,
REMEMBER CHRIST OUR SAVIOR WAS BORN UPON THIS DAY;
TO SAVE US ALL FROM SATAN’S POWER WHEN WE WERE GONE ASTRAY.
O TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY, COMFORT AND JOY, O TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY!
ALL:
FROM GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER THIS BLESSED ANGEL CAME;
AND UNTO CERTAIN SHEPHERDS BROUGHT TIDINGS OF THE SAME;
HOW THAT IN BETHLEHEM WAS BORN THE SON OF GOD BY NAME.
O TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY, COMFORT AND JOY, O TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY!
CHORUS ALL:
OOO, STAR OF WONDER, STAR OF NIGHT, STAR WITH ROYAL BEAUTY BRIGHT,
WESTWARD LEADING, STILL PROCEEDING, GUIDE US TO THY PERFECT LIGHT.

BOYS:
BORN A KING ON BETHLEHEM’S PLAIN; GOLD I BRING TO CROWN HIM AGAIN;
KING FOREVER, CEASING NEVER, OVER US ALL TO REIGN. CHORUS

GIRLS:
GLORIOUS NOW BEHOLD HIM ARISE, KING AND GOD AND SACRIFICE,
HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! WORSHIP HIM GOD MOST HIGH. CHORUS

GOD REST YE MERRY, GENTLEMEN, LET NOTHING YOU DISMAY (REPEAT TO END)

MARY WAS THE FIRST ONE

MARY WAS THE FIRST ONE TO/ CARRY THE GOSPEL
WHEN THE ANGELS BROUGHT THE NEWS/ OF THE PRECIOUS LITTLE BOY
MARY WAS THE FIRST ONE TO/ CARRY THE GOSPEL
AND THAT NEWS BROUGHT JOY SWEET JOY. (SING AGAIN)

BOYS VERSE:
NOW THE SHEPHERDS WATCHED THEIR FLOCKS BY NIGHT, NEARLY FELL ASLEEP.
ANOTHER LONELY QUIET NIGHT, WATCHIN’ ALL THOSE SHEEP.
UNTIL A CHOIR OF HOLY ANGELS FILLED THE NIGHT WITH SONGS OF JOY!
GOOD NEWS I BRING FOR CHRIST THE KING, IS MARY’S BABY BOY! CHORUS ALL

GIRLS:
HOSANNAH TO THE HIGHEST/ AND CHRIST HIS ONLY SON.
GODS STORY WRAPPED IN SWADLING CLOTHES. THE MEEK AND HOLY ONE!
THIS BABY BOY WILL CHANGE THE HEARTS OF ALL WHO CAN BELIEVE.
WHAT THE PROPHETS TOLD/ HAS COME TO PASS. A VIRGIN HAS CONCEIVED! CHORUS ALL
