The Seven Joys of Mary (carol)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Seven Joys of Mary" (Roud # 278) is a traditional carol about Mary's happiness at moments in the life of Jesus, probably inspired by the trope of the Seven Joys of the Virgin in the devotional literature and art of Medieval Europe. Though not traditionally associated with Christmas, it has become so in the modern era.

The song has English and American versions referring to different acts by Jesus that gave joy to Mary:[1][2]

English version American version
1 Sucking at her breast Being born
2 Curing the lame Curing the lame
3 Curing the blind Curing the blind
4 Raising the dead Reading the Old Testament in the Temple
5 Bearing the cross Raising the dead
6 Wearing the crown of Heaven Rising from the dead
7 Writing with a golden pen Wearing the crown of Heaven

The common music is sung thus:[3]

Musical scores are temporarily disabled.
