THE TWELVE GOOD JOYS
x
The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of ten, To see our blessed Saviour
To write without a pen ; To write without a pen, good man, &c.
XI
The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of eleven, To see our blessed Saviour
To show the gates of Heaven ; To show the gates of Heaven, good man,
XII
The next good joy our Mary had,
It was the joy of twelve, To see our blessed Saviour
Shut close the gates of hell; Shut close the gates of hell, good man, And blessed may he be, Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, To all eternity.
