Attend, you faithful Christians, give ear to what I say,
It's of a glorious miracle occurred the other day;
Where our blessed Virgin did herself to sinners show,
In the holy church of Knock, in the county of Mayo.

A faithful few, to Mary, true, returning home at night.
Upon the chapel wall did view a most transparent light;
They stood amazed And on it gazed, and trembling struck with fear,
When to their astonished eyes three statues did appear.

On the right was blessed St. Joseph, upon his face a smile,
His holy hands uplifted as he meant to bless this isle;
Our blessed Ladys hands were raised in an attitude of prayer,
And in the right hand of St. John, God's holy word was there.

The faithful few that saw the sight, they say, both one and all,
The holy apparition was some distance from the wall;
And on the left side of St. John appeared to view quite plain,
An altar, cross, and the instruments by which the Lamb was slain.

There are hundreds come from far and near our Lady's aid to seek,
And by her aid the deaf and dumb are made to hear and speak;
And many who were born blind now see the way to go,
From the holy church of Knock in the county of Mayo.

At the wedding feast of Galilee, our blessed Lady said.
Oh, Son Divine, there is no wine, but water there is instead;
No sooner had she said the words when her aid, Divine,
The water that was at the feast was turned into wine.

Oh, blessed St. Joseph and St. John, we call upon your aid,
And Holy Mother of our God, for sinners intercede;
For the wonders that our Saviour did while preaching to his flock,
Are done strain. through Mary's aid. in the holy church of Knock.
