(Traditional - Arr. GBS)

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)

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

The next good joy that Mary had
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)

CHORUS

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 (San's part)

CHORUS

The next good joy that Mary had
It was the joy of four
To see her own son Jesus Christ
To read the bible lore
To read the bible lore, good man
And blessed may he be (Bob's part)

CHORUS
(instrumental bit)

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 (All)

CHORUS

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 (San's part)

The last 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 (All)
