Reta Watkins – Mary Did You Know | That Christmas Feeling Album

Contemporary Christian Music: Reta Watkins – “Mary Did You Know” (In Studio Music Video) from That Christmas Feeling Album.

About Reta Watkins

Reta Watkins was just six years old when she recorded her first single. Growing up the youngest of five children in a family of musical missionaries, Reta remembers life was an adventure.  She has honed her skills as a vocal stylist for more than 30 years.

She has waited her whole life to do this record. According to Reta, “My father passed away 10 years ago. I loved my dad so much, and one of my fondest memories was of us singing Christmas carols together. In particular, he loved all things Christmas, and I loved what he loved, so I fell in love with the Christmas carols. I would listen to Christmas music all year long if I could.”

That Christmas Feeling Album

The road to making That Christmas Feeling ran from Reta’s suburban Philadelphia home, straight to Nashville, Tennessee where she enlisted the considerable talents of long-time friend and producer, Scott Williamson, who had been itching to produce a big band jazz record.

Scott enlisted the aid of his father, celebrated Dove Award winning composer/arranger Dave Williamson. When Dave unfortunately fell ill and passed away before the album could be completed, Scott called on the talents of Jason Webb (Lauren Daigle, Amy Grant, Lee Brice, Richard Marx) to step in and complete the arrangements.

“Mary, Did You Know?” Lyrics | Performed by Reta Watkins

Mary, did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?
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 the storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little baby, you kiss the face of God.Mary, did you know? Mary, did you know? Mary, did you know?
Mary, did you know? 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 would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven’s perfect Lamb?
That sleeping child you’re holding is the great I am.

Mary, did you know? Mary, did you know? Mary, did you know?
Mary, did you know?

Songwriter(s): Mark Lowry, Buddy Greene
