Today’s first entry in our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest is from Thewhiterabbit–Mary, Did You Know, sung by Clay Aiken.
So far we have a clear leader with 25 views on the day it was requested, but I don’t want to reveal any more than that. And there’s lot of time for lots more carols.
The Incarnation of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, is the most fantastic event in all the history of earth–and it really happened. Think about that.
Requested by Lydia–Mary, Did You Know?, instrumental with lyrics.
I’ve never heard this carol sung so beautifully as this–Mary, Did You Know?, performed by the students at Fountainview Academy. They even managed to stage it in a stable.
Joshua has another Christmas hymn for us–Mary, Did You Know?, sung by Mark Lowry with the Gaither Vocal Band. This is the second request for this hymn, but there’s no limit, so let everyone feel free to promote any hymn they wish to hear. It’s all part of the fun of our first annual Christmas Carol Contest!
The winner will be whoever asked for the hymn that had the most views on any single day of the contest. Meanwhile, there’s one prize for everyone–the hymns themselves.
We know Marcia from her blog, “A Mom Looking Up.” She enters the carol contest with a request for Mary, Did You Know? by Pentatonix.
We say yes to all requests for Christmas hymns here, so this encore is for Linda: Mary, Did You Know?
If nobody objects, I’d like to keep on posting Christmas hymns for the rest of the week. We’ll never use them all up.
See how easy it is to get a favorite Christmas song or hymn posted here? Just ask!
TheWhiteRabbit asked for Mary, Did You Know? I hope you like the version I’ve selected.
My editor, Susan, requested this Christmas song. I’d never heard of it before, it’s new and I don’t much keep up with what’s new–but this is nice. And the lyrics are Biblically right, too.
So here it is, folks, enjoy it.
***P.S.–The Comment Contest is almost over! If you put up the 4,000th comment, you’ll win a copy of one of my books, your choice. (But go easy on Bell Mountain, I don’t have many copies left.) If you win a book and would like me to sign it, please remember to mention it.
