1 The first good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of one;
To see the blessed Jesus Christ
When He was first her son:

When He was first her son, good man:
And blessed may He be,
Both 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 Christ
To make the lame to go:

To make the lame to go, good man:
And blessed may He be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To all eternity.

3 The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of three;

To make the blind to see;

And blessed may He be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To all eternity.

It was the joy of four;

To all eternity.

Upon the crucifix:

To all eternity.

It was the joy of seven;
To see her own son, Jesus Christ
To wear the crown of heaven:

And blessed may He be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To all eternity.
