HOLY ST. JOSEPH
1. Joseph, the Just One,
the spouse of the Queen,
And protector of the Treasure:
the Baby unseen,
This Child, declared the
angel is God’s holy Son,
Joseph felt unworthy to
be God’s chosen one.
2. Humble, and simple,
poor, yet strong,
He prepared for this calling
his whole life long:
he was pure in heart,
He saw the face of God;
he was thus set apart.
Holy St. Joseph, you protected our Lord;
To die in His arms was your fitting reward.
You lived in purity, a chaste, holy life;
The Lord gave you Mary, a treasure, as wife.
3. A hard-working carpenter,
you show us the way
To offer our labors to
God each day.
You guide us and protect
us by all of your prayers,
you protected the Holy Ones from all of their fears.
Holy St. Joseph, please pray to our Lord
That we die in comfort, as was your reward.
Teach us the purity of a chaste, holy life;
Your example and Mary’s, the Virgin, your wife.
Holy St. Joseph, we pray to our Lord
To meet you in heaven, our eternal reward.
We keep our hearts pure and free from all strife
To behold the Lord Jesus at the end of our life.
