The Seven Joys of Mary

The first good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of one,
To see her ownsome Jesus
To suck at her breast-bone.
     To suck at her breast-bone, good man,
     And happy may you be,
     O Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
     And all eternity.

The seeond joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of two,
To see her ownsome jesus
To make the lame to go.

The third joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of three,
To see her ownsome Jesus
As made the blind to see.

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of five,
To see her ownsome Jesus
As raised the dead to life.

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of six,
To see her ownsome Jesus
To bear the crucifix.

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of seven,
To see her ownsome Jesus
To wear the crown of Heaven.

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of ten,
To see her ownsome Jesus
To write with a golden pen.
     To write with a golden pen, good man,
     And happy may you be,
     O Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
     And all eternity.
