SATB Choir and Organ (or piano). A marvelously effervescent setting of the traditional carol. Great for your Lessons and Carols service and other times during the Advent/Christmas season.

The first good 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, good man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both 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 Christ,
To make the lame to go.
To make the lame to go, good man; 
And blessed may he be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
to all eternity.

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

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

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

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

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