The Seven Joys of Mary

Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. The first good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of one
To see her blessed Jesus
When He was first her Son

Refrain
When He was Her first Son, Good Lord,
And happy may we be,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
To all eternity.

2. The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of two
To see her own son Jesus,
To make the lame to go. Refrain

3. The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of three
To see her own son Jesus,
To make the blind to see. Refrain

4. The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of four
To see her own son Jesus,
To read the Bible o’er. Refrain

5. The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of five
To see her own son Jesus,
To bring the dead alive. Refrain

6. The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of six
To see her own son Jesus,
Upon the crucifix. Refrain

7. The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of seven
To see her own son Jesus,
To wear the crown of heaven. Refrain
