An Ode To St Joseph

joseph and mary on the flight into egyptAn Ode To St Joseph

‘Saint Joseph, God has chosen you
to keep his Church from harm;
so hold the Church as once you held
the Christ child in your arms.
Saint Joseph, God has given you
all workers for your own.
Teach them to do the best they can,
with steel and wood and stone.
Saint Joseph when you pray for us,
pray to the Three in One;
but talk in human words with him,
who let yoiu call him son’
