Holy patron, thee saluting

Representative Text

1 Holy patron, thee saluting
Here we meet, with hearts sincere;
Blest Saint Joseph, all uniting,
Call on thee to hear our prayer.

Happy saint, in bliss adoring
Jesus, Savior of humankind,
Hear thy children thee imploring,
May we thy protection find.

2 Thou who faithfully attended
Him whom heav'n and earth adore;
Who with pious care defended
Mary, Virgin ever pure. [Refrain]

3 May our fervent pray'rs ascending,
Move thee for our souls to plead;
May thy smile of peace descending,
Benedictions on us shed. [Refrain]

4 Through this life, O watch around us!
Fill with love our ev'ry breath,
And, when parting fear surrounds us,
Guide us through the toils of death. [Refrain]
