The Seven Joys of Mary
This beautiful song is an old Gaelic version written from the perspective of Mary as she recounts the joys her son has brought her from his birth to his story of the Holy Book from his willingness to save the world. It belongs to a small, yet beloved cache of Irish religious songs in the Irish language that are still sung today.
