Two ravens in the old oak tree, one for you and one for me Bluebells in the late December, I see signs now all the time The last time we slept together, there was something that was not there You never wanted to alarm me but I'm the one that's drowning now
I could sleep forever these days because in my dreams I see you again But this time fleshed out fuller face in your confirmation dress It was so like you to visit me to let me know you were OK It was so like you to visit me, always worrying about someone else
At your funeral I was so upset, so upset, In your life you were larger than this Statuesque
I see signs now all the time that your not dead your sleeping I believe in anything that brings you back home to me

The lyrics for "Mary, Did You Know?" were written by Christian singer and comedian Mark Lowry, after his pastor asked him to write a Christmas musical for their church. Southern gospel musician Buddy Greene later added music to his words.
