JD: David, what can you tell us about this song?
DJ: Well the song “Mary Did You Know” the words written by Mark Lowery and that was back in 1984 as he was working on a Christmas program for his church. Now the music wasn’t written until 1991 when Mark gave the words to Betty Greene who was also touring with the Gaither of Vocal Band. Michael English who was also part of the Gaither Band was actually the first person to record the song that same year. The one we’re playing today is based on an arrangement that Mark Lowery has used.
