1 Be joyful, Mary, heav'nly Queen,
be joyful, Mary!
Your grief is changed to joy serene,
Alleluia! Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!

2 The Son you bore by heaven's grace,
be joyful, Mary!
Did by his death our guilt erase,
Alleluia!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!

3 The Lord has risen from the dead,
be joyful, Mary!
He rose in glory as he said,
Alleluia!
Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!

4 Then pray to God, O Virgin fair,
be joyful, Mary!
That he our souls to heaven bear,
Alleluia! Rejoice, rejoice, O Mary!
