KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE lyrics - Seven Joys Of Mary

KATE & ANNA MCGARRIGLE
"Seven Joys Of Mary"

The very first joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of one
To see her blessed Jesus
When He was first her Son
When He was first her Son.

[Chorus:]
When He was Her first Son, Good Lord;
And happy may we be,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
To all eternity

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of two
To see her own son Jesus,
To make the lame to go.
To make the lame to go.

[Chorus]

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of three
To see her own son Jesus,
To make the blind to see.
To make the blind to see.

[Chorus]

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of four
To see her own son Jesus,
To read the Bible o'er.
To read the Bible o'er.

[Chorus]

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of five
To see her own son Jesus,
To bring the dead alive.
To bring the dead alive.

[Chorus]

The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of six
To see her own son Jesus,
Upon the Crucifix.
Upon the Crucifix.

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]
