The first good joy that Mary had
It was the joy of one
To see her own son Jesus Christ
When He was first of son
When He was first of son, good man
And blessed may he be (Alan's part)

Oh, oh, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
For all eternity
Oh, oh, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
For all eternity

It was the joy of two
To see her own son Jesus Christ
When he was to sent school
When he was to sent school, good man
And blessed may he be (Darrell's part)
