The first go,Od joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of one:
to see her blessed Jesus Christ
When He was first her Son.
When He was first her Son, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

The next go,Od joy that 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, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

The next go,Od joy that 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, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

The next go,Od joy that 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, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

The next go,Od joy that 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, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

The next go,Od joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of six:
to see her own son Jesus Christ,
Upon the crucifix.
Upon the crucifix, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

The next go,Od joy that 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, go,Od man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.
