Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

1 The first good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of one;
To see the blessed Jesus Christ
When He was first her son:

Chorus:
When He was first her son, good man:
And blessed may He be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To all eternity.

2 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:

Chorus:
To make the lame to go, good man:
And blessed may He be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To all eternity.

3 The next good joy that Mary had,
It was the joy of three;

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.

It was the joy of four;

It was the joy of six;

Upon the crucifix:

And blessed may He be,
Both Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
To all eternity.

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.
