Mary how could you have known.... that an angel would come and proclaim the holy birth and you would be chosen to bring God's son to earth? could you have known?

Mary how could you have known... that your child would be the savior just as the prophets said, and that He would be born in a lowly manger bed? could you have known?

Were you not bewildered,,,,, was it very strange?
Did you ever wonder.... how your life would chance?
How could you be ready?.....How did you prepare?
How could you imagine?.....Did you say a Prayer?

Mary how could you have known that your son would be Messiah
and all the world behold...that you would name Him Jesus as
angels had foretold?
Mary....Mary....Mary..... MARY.........MARY.....How could you have known?

Very nice composition/rendition of "Mary How Could You Have Known". Instrumentation and production is spot on. The vocalist's style fits perfectly into this piece... angelic and "holy"... this all works together to really reflect the feel of this moving holiday piece. Beautiful rendition... great job on this!

Beautiful rendition of a familiar Christmas song about Mary. The vocalist's performance comes across as poignant, sincere, real and meaningful. The orchestral arrangement is expertly done. A nice addition to anyone's Christmas play list of sacred carols.

the lyrics reminded me of Mary and Joeseph on their way to have Jesus.
