Mary Did You Know by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene

After going off to college to obtain a business degree, Mark Lowry was completely sidetracked when he felt a strong calling by God. Instead of obtaining a business degree, Mark did a U-Turn and walked out with a Youth degree and was on his way to a music ministry.

It was while he was singing at churches that he began to talk to his audience between songs. He talked about his life and shared his testimony and they responded with laughter.

Since that time Mark has performed before hundreds of thousands with his singing/comedy act. A true entertainer, he has released numerous cd’s and videos and as of late he has gone into event planning.

In 1984 something happened that would establish him as a songwriter. His church asked him to write a Christmas play. He responded by writing down questions that he would like to ask Mary, Jesus’ mother. He turned those questions into lyrics and began looking for someone to put music to them.

It would take 6 years and 2 other song-writers before Buddy Greene would compose the music for the song that is now Mary Did You Know.

Mark’s song is now a favorite Christmas song that has been recorded by more than thirty different artists including Michael English, Kathy Mattea, Kenny Rogers, Wynonna Judd, Billy Dean, Natalie Cole and Donnie Osmond.

    So incredibly POWERFUL!May Mary and “her Baby Boy” always abide in the center
    of our hearts, spirits and lives! And may we come to KNOW Him in such a way
    that our lives reflect a personal relationship with Him and the Mother who
    cradled Him within her womb.

    WOW this song has really touched me and all of my family and friends! When I hear this song and others I wonder did Jesus have a regular life for instance did he ever fall in love of have the one best friend that he could tell them everything? I guess I will not really know but for now God bless all:)

    Love you Mark. I first saw you perform this on DVD with the Gaithers. It is the most beautiful rendition I have heard. God has really gifted you with an amazing gift. The Gaithers are lacking without your sense of humour!!! Glad to see you are back with them. Missed you.
    My second son has been composing, playing 5 different instruments, singing up to 3 parts, and recording some really great music too. God is sooooo good. I feel so blessed. I have Christian music playing 24/7 in my home. Praising God is the best way to lift your spirits. It really does work. We are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. He is so so powerful.
