The first good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of one;
To see her own son, 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,
Through all eternity.

The next good joy our 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...

The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of three;
To see her own son, Jesus Christ,
To make the blind to see:

To make the blind to see, good man…

The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of four;
To see her own son, Jesus Christ,
To read the Bible o'er:

To read the Bible o'er, good man…

The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of five;
To see her own son, Jesus Christ,
To bring the dead alive:

To bring the dead alive, good man…

The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of six;
To see her own son, Jesus Christ,
Upon the crucifix:

Upon the crucifix, good man…

The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of seven;
To see her own son, Jesus Christ,
To wear the crown of heaven:

To wear the crown of Heaven, good man,
And blessed may he be
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Through all eternity.
